This blog post should be spoken to demonstrate what I mean, but I think you'll understand it.

I sometimes hear people say, "It was a nice restaurant/hotel/whatever," and it sounds odd because they don't emphasize "nice." Of course, it's OK to say, "It was a really nice hotel," if you emphasize it.

But if you don't emphasize "nice," then it will generally mean "not very good." This is important for all you single men who are going to study abroad: If an American woman says you are a "nice guy," it means she's not interested in you.

Japanese women do this too, by the way, with expressions like, "彼はいい人だね." It means she's not romantically interested in you.

Please use English well!
