    A couple of questions

    Hello,
    Thank you very much for letting me ask a couple of questions. So far, I have not found any clear responses to any of them so I hope you can help me.

    1. I know the difference between "good" and "well", but when should I use them? Is it true that good is used with verbs such as taste, feel, hear... and well with the others?

    2. What is the difference between "to fit" and "to suit"?
    Thank you very much.

    Re: A couple of questions

    1- Taste good = it is pleasant to eat
    Taste well = have a good sense of taste

    Most of these can be used with both, though the adjective is the normal sense. However, I'd say 'hear well' is the more natural with that verb.

    2 fit = be the correct size suit = look good It might fit but not suit....
