    Good or Well?

    Is there any difference?
    Examples: I was great or I was well?
    What's wrong?

    Thanks.

    It depends on what you want to say. Those sentences are both possible but they have different meanings. Can you work out what the difference is?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I was great - I was wonderful in some activity, or very well known and respected.
    I was well - I was healthy.
