USE OF QUITE AND VERY

 

A word, usually an adverb, that has little meaning in itself but provides force, intensity or emphasis to another

word.
 
The most common intensifier in English is "very." Its equivalent in Spanish is muy, which also is quite common.
 
  The boy is not very tall.              
                                                                               The green and yellow ribbons are quite long.
                                                                               The purple ribbon is very long.
                                                                               The orange ribbon is not very long.
                      
Example:
