A common English mistake is to misuse good and well. So, what is the difference? Obviously, good is an adjective and well is an adverb. What does it mean? All you need to remember is that good modifies an object, a person or a thing, for example: She is a good driver; while well describes a verb, an action: She drives pretty well.
However, there clearly are some exceptions, for instance, the verb to be. Although it is a verb, but as a rule, it needs to be followed by an adjective: It’s good, She is smart etc., unless we speak about someone’s health, then we say: She is well.
Another exception would be the so-called linking verbs: feel, seem, look, appear, smell, taste and sound, which are usually followed by an adjective:
They look good. — Они выглядят хорошо.
It smells good.— Это пахнет хорошо.
Sounds good! — Звучит неплохо!
Also, well can be a part of several compound adjectives, for example:
A well-built young man — Хорошо сложенный мужчина
Well-educated citizens — Хорошо образованные граждане
A well-behaved child — Ребенок с хорошим поведением
A lesson well taught — Хорошо проведенный урок
Hope you managed to understand the material pretty well!
