Hello, I'm Sam and we are going to look at the difference between 'good' and 'well' together.

I make very good pizza. What is 'good' describing? It's describing 'pizza', which is a noun, which makes 'good' an adjective. And where does it go in the sentence? It goes before the noun.

I make pizza very well. What is 'well' describing here? It's describing 'make'. And 'make' is a verb, so 'well' is an adverb. And where does it go in a sentence? It goes after the verb.

Careful, because 'well' can also be an adjective, but only to talk about feeling healthy or unhealthy. I wasn't feeling very well yesterday, but I'm fine today.

So keep watching these videos, so your English will be good and you'll be able to speak it well.
