The quote is a snippet of my email. A forum teacher here revised my wording of 'quite appreciate' as very much appreciate.I
quitevery much appreciate the time and efforts you have taken for preparingtraining me, and trying to lethelping me adapt to ****asap.
I think quite appreciate is grammatically correct, but native speakers don't say it. Am I right? Can I say " I highly appreciate ... ..."? I was used to say "highly appreicate".
I think I'd be more likely to say "I somewhat appreciate" rather than "quite". I wouldn't equate "quite" with "very much". However, with your email, if you're thanking someone a lot for their help, then "very much" would be appropriate.

Thank you for your helpful reply, everyone.
Fivejedjon, I hesitated whether or not I should ask those questions in the same thread of my writing you corrected because I didn't know if you had time to answer them. I very much appreciate your help indeed time and again.
