US English vs British English


My friend, Rachel, says, "In American English, quite means 'very'
or 'really', (as in, Your site is quite good! I really like it!).

In British English, however, it means 'not that much' or 'a little',
or even 'not good at all', (as in, Yes, the weather's quite alright
-- it's not flooding yet.)"

This is a repeat post. Thanks Rachel.
