In this video recorded by Ross IELTS Academy, you will learn how to use and pronounce Quit Quiet and Quite in our daily English.
What’s the difference between these three words?
Well, obviously, the biggest one is how they are pronounced. “Quit”, “quite”, “quiet”. You should make sure to pronounce them correctly as one of the biggest mistakes is how everyone mispronounces them.
The next difference is what each word means, right?
Let’s start with the word “quit”.
I quit my house to go to work.
You can see me if you quit the office.
Here “quit” means that you leave a place, normally permanently, like quitting your house or office here.
However, “quit” has also got another meaning which is “to stop doing something”, like:
You should quit smoking or you will die very soon.
She decided to quit her job to follow her dreams.
Here, we are talking about “to stop smoking or working”.
Now, the next word is “quite”.
Let’s look at an example:
The end of the movie was quite sad.
I am not quite ready for the test.
Quite means “to a certain extent”.
Now, the last word is “quiet” which of course you know the definition of.
You should be quiet when you are in a library.
The house was so quiet when my mom was sleeping.
The word “quiet” means “silent and calm” or when there is no noise.
