Assunto:  What first crosses your minds?
 
Mensagem: 

a) The exam was rather difficult. ('very' or to 'a slight degree'?)
I mean "bem difícil" or "um poucquinho difícil"?

More difficult then expected (closer to bem diff)

 

b) She's quite honest. ('very' or 'a little')
i.e., "bem honesta" or "um pouco honesta, mas não completamente"?... or in "she's quite a woman" does it usually mean "um mulherão"?

 

Not completely honest but mostly, best to be careful though.

She's a 'hot' example

 

c) I'll be back in a couple of weeks. (two or some)?

At least 2 but less than a month

 

Amalgam of UK and US English background
