Really vs quite (ganz)
I've just started the qualifiers lesson in German and i found out a problem in my English.
It says that "ganz" as an adverb can intensify or de-intensify a word. for example :
Der Film war ganz gut. ( the film was quite nice)
Der Film war ganz toll. (The film was really great)
Now I'm not sure why really is an intensifier and quite is a de-intensifier in English. Am I getting anything wrong or there's truly a difference between "really" and "quite"?
Would be thankful for your help :-)
