Toll vs grossartig vs das ist klasse

Hi, 

How should these be ranked and should they only be used in informal situations?
1. Toll
2. Grossartig 
3. Das ist klasse

Hallo Rex,

All of these words are indeed colloquial, so it's best to avoid them in formal situations. As for ranking them, I wouldn't say that one is particularly stronger than the other - they can all be translated as "great" in English. You can generally use them interchangeably.

(Note, though, that in Germany it would be written as großartig.)

Tschüss!
