The Polish edition of 'Matura Solution Pre-Intermediate' by Tim Falla,Paul A. Davies, Oxford University Press, ISBN 978 019 455007 9 says on page 11:
The modifying adverb quite/very goes before a/an when there is a noun. For example: This is quite/very a good song.'
Does it mean they are undereducated?
I think 'quite' is used this way:
- This is quite a good song. ('quite' followed by a/an)
- This is a very good song. ('very' preceded by a/an)
What do you think, teachers? Am i right?
Yes - you're right.
