Hi Alex! Thank you for this lesson. I made 2 mistakes in the first and the third question. But I think that in the first question I am right. I would ask you to explain what is wrong. In the first question I answered “well” because “it tastes well”, not “this burger is good”.

ow3092

    …actually I described the verb “taste” with the adverb “well”. Isn’t it&? Grammatically, it should be right

    ow3092

      There is a small group of verbs of “sensation” that use the adjective instead of the adverb.

      It seems good, it looks fine, it smelled wonderful …
      It tastes good!!!!!
      “To taste” functions here as a copulative verb; “good” is the adjectival subject complement.
      Yeah just take it as it is

      poslegg

        Thanks for the clarification. But in the lesson was nothing about it. I intuitively imagined another answer :) but in the test decided to rely on the rules from the lesson. Now I know it. Thank you again!

        ow3092

        I can’t understand it.The first question I am wrong.But why the copulative verb can use good?

        pobu

      A linking verb connects the subject of the sentence to information about the subject, such as adjective, noun, or subject complement. Whereas an action verb expresses an action and is usually followed by adverb.

      “taste” can be both a linking verb in some sentences and an action verb in others. One way to determine is to substitute “is” for it. If the sentence still makes sense, then “taste” is probably a linking verb; otherwise it’s an action verb.

      Ex: This burger tastes good = This burger is good.
      Ex: The wine tastes like vinegar = The wine is like vinegar.
      *** Make sense, so “taste” is a linking verb. Hence, the adjective “good” is the right answer.

      Ex: I can’t taste anything well because of my cold.
      The sentence doens’t make sense when substituting “taste” with “be”: I can’t be anything well because of my cold.
      *** Hence, “taste” is an action verb and must be followed by the adverb “well”.

      Lfabian2013

    I also answered well in the first question because is the verb what is being modified. What’s up with that, what we understood wrong?

    moycano

    I also answered “well” in the first question because the verb is what is being modified. This means that an adverb is required, right? What’s up with that? — (Please remove the previous comment. Thanks.))

    moycano

    i think tastz is a state verb

    radouanema1

    Well describes verb
    good describes noun

akosilianmay

Thank you Alex.

pafsilipoclub

thank you

byba

Thank you so much for this lesson Alex.
By the way very often I do not know if I must say “good” or “right”. As an example, what is the correct sentence:
-I’m on the right way
or
-I’m on the good way
Kind regards
Jean-Paul

jpfromparis

    “I’m on the right away” means that you are going straight where you should go or the right side of something. “I’m on the good way” means you are doing something well.

    crf4ever10

Alex, in the quit there was a question:

1. This burger tastes _______________.
good
well

I answered WELL because it modifies the verb (it tastes <= to taste), so it is adverb. But the quiz says it must be GOOD. Why?

meglio

HI Alex ,
thank u for your lesson :)
I dont undrestand one thing in this quiz
1. This burger tastes _______________.

good
well
why good not well ?
after the verb i thought it shoud be “well” . I’m confused.Please, help me to undrestand.
greetings
Angelica

angelica212

    I think that we may use “well” in that case if there is action in the sentence. So “tastes” it is not action.

Hi guys! I want to find a native speaker to improve my language skills and knowledge! I haven’t got a friend who talk with this language.
If you want to improve each other, let’s start it. only skype :)

Hi Alex! Thank you! Now I’ve known about a linking verb (smell, feel) after i look up more about ‘Good’ and ‘Well’

cikey

HAHAAH, Do you see: Dora rocks!! I got a 80.

honeygee

Hi Alex
I’m little confused because you said if we have a verb we use well. But the last example on the board has “feel” in sentence. It’s a verb, isn’t it ? Could you explain me why you used “good” ?

inek

    Becouse “feel” is said about “I”.

Hi Alex

What a great site and what an impressive teacher you are! I taught ESL 16 years ago for a period of three years and recently decided to go back to it so your lessons are really are helpful, it’s all coming back to me through you:) I have a couple of questions for you regarding teacher/student workbooks. I believe I used to use Oxford/Cambridge workbooks and today, here in the US, the school I have just begun working for uses Pearson. Do you have a preference? I would like to start doing private lessons and would love your input on this. Also if you know of any useful workbooks that help teachers teach difficult grammar concepts I would love to know. Keep up the great work!

sm1th

i got 9/10 ^_^ i need to study hard for much better ^_^

zyke2122

Alex,
I have a mass with it.
We say – It tastes good. Taste is a verb. It should be incorrect. According to your lesson it should not be so.

I have a text book with an entirely diffrent approach – 1. There is a group of verbs which require good ( so called linkink verbs ) 2. a group of action verbs – we use well.
Then they explain cases in which the meaning of the sentence changes more or less according to your explanations.

look good vs look well
feel good vs feel well

Eventually I am a bit lost. Can you help me?

MKJMKJ

nice and short

hpdtc

same doubt at first question. lsn’t well modifying the verb to taste?

omargut

Mr. Alex, I am learning a lot of English with you. Your lessons and teaching make me feel very motivated. They are clear and simple.

Hi. i got a 90. i made just a little mistake.

i´ve got a suggestion:
could you please explain me the difference between these sentences. is related to the verb “motion”

I motioned to the waiter.
He motioned for us to follow him.
She motioned him into her office.

Is there any difference?

challenge41

    Hi Meglio. For some verbs we don’t use an adverb and we use an adjective, TASTE in one them:
    be, become, get, smell, appear, feel, ….. a

    Soei

….are some them. But some of these verbs can be used with an adverb in another meaning:
1-You appear tired.

2-She suddenly appeared at the doorway.
I hope it helps. Best regards: soei

Stellla

Great lesson, Alex. But I don’t feel comfortable

answering to the question “How are you”

” I’m good.” It doesn’t sound right. It’s weird, although I’ve heard it tons of times.

Sonia1234

Thanks a lot I make it I get it well done but by my heart I feel it and I have chosen the right answer by my heart I do understand through your nice explanation that both good as well as well are the same meaning thanks again
