    I'm still very confused about adjectives and adverbs

    Last time I posted a question about when to use adjectives and when to use adverbs after verbs.

    But I'm still confused about examples such as:

    It looks good to me.
    It sounds perfect.
    It feels good.
    why not use:

    It looks well to me.
    It sounds perfectly.
    It feels well.
    what's the difference?

    English is my 2nd language and if possible, please correct EACH and EVERY mistakes in my sentences. Thanks a million in advance.

    The verbs in your sentences are linking verbs,
