Hi there!

 

Whenever you speak English, it's really important to quantify everything you say.

You have to QUANTIFY or LIMIT whatever you say, to allow other people to clearly understand how much or how little you do something, or how big or how small an object is, or how fast or how slow something is.

 

Here are some examples of Quantifying words and expressions:

It's FAR slower than ours.

It's NOT NEARLY as fast as ours.

It's NOT QUITE AS fast AS ours.

It's ALMOST AS fast AS ours.

It's JUST a bit slower than ours.

It's JUST AS fast AS ours.

It's JUST a LITTLE BIT faster than ours

It's WAY faster than ours.

Just a LITTLE BIT please
