    Smile good

    Hello

    Would you take a look at the following sentence?
    #1 My husband is a good cook.

    I think #1 means that my husband is good at cooking.

    So if you want to describe the pro cook, how do you say?

    And how about describing the pro player?
    #2 Nobu is a good swimmer.

    In this sentence, is Nobu always not a pro swimmer?

    Would you give me proper expressions?

    Thank you.

    Default Re: good

    It would depend on context- without knowing whther they are pro or not, 'good' doesn't give us that information. With the first example, you could use 'chef', but I don't know of any word for swimmer that distinguishes a pro.
