Good and Well
When we are talking about health, Well can be used as
'How are you?' -'Quite well, thanks'I don't feel very well.
oWell is the kind of adjective that is only used after
a verb. You can say
She's a well girl.
To express other meanings besides health, well cannot
be used as an adjective.
When I'm with you I'm fine / I feel fine.
To talk about quality or skill, we use Good as an adjective
and Well as an adverb.
It's basically a good car, and it runs well, but I don't
think the passenger space is very well designed.
Note the difference of word-order. Good can come
before a noun, but not Well (adverbs are not usually
put between the verb and the object).
He speaks good English.
He speaks English well.
