Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 300. The title of the lesson today
is the difference between quite and quite a. Because there's, there's
actually a big difference between the two.
Something is quite something and some somebody or something is quite a
something. All right. So let's take a look at the note here. Quite, simply put it
could just mean very or to a great extent. All right. So let's look at some
examples there. Number one here. It is quite cold today. Yeah it's just simply
it is very cold today or it's cold to a great extent. I guess you could say that
to that movie was quite funny , that movie was very funny. The cost is quite high.
The cost is very high or to a great extent high for that ticket. Okay good. All
right now Let's look at quite a . Quite. a basically means of an unusually
exceptional or noticeable type. . So we're really impressed with it. If we say
something is quite a something. All right so let's look at the first one
here. He is quite a good cook. All right. This means he is like an exceptional
cook. Much better than most of them. . If it was just quiet. It wouldn't make sense. He
is quite good cook. That doesn't he's very good. No. That doesn't make any
sense.. So here 'quite a' basically means
exceptional. Similar to number two. Here she is quite a storyteller. She's an
unusually good or she's an exceptional storyteller. Okay. Let's look at the third
one. He is known for being quite a good speaker. Again exceptional and usually
good. Much better than the others. Really standing out, being a noticeable type.
Let's look at number four. That is quite a collection you have there. All right so
again, unusual, maybe unusually large or you know exceptional. Most people's
collections are not that big. Good and it's good to note this as well.
Quite is often used after a negative. Meaning a negative word to mean
something is not exactly something. And here's just a couple of examples here.
She was never quite as good as her sister. So she was never exactly as good
as her sister. She was never quite as good and now the second one here. Those
statements are not quite right. They're not exactly right. You know maybe there's
something a little bit wrong about them or not completely accurate about that.
Okay anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-
