Hi again! Could you explain me the differences between "Fair bit", "Quite a bit" and "Great deal". For me, all of them are "Bastante" in Spanish.
Do you think are thy synonyms? Many thanks in advance. Ciao!

    I disagree with horsewishr (sorry!).

    I have a fair bit of respect for her: la respeto bastante
    I have quite a bit of respect for her: la respecto bastante
    I have a great deal of respect for her: la respeto mucho

    I would say that "a fair bit of respect" is perhaps slightly more than "quite a bit", but that's just a gut feeling.
