Dear members and teachers:
Before starting this thread, I apologize for the last thread I posted about adjective clause which I made it too long and somewhat out of some forum rules.
I would like to know the following questions in relation to the usage of TO BE GOOD AT and TO BE GOOD IN:
1) Must be good at be only followed by a verb in its gerund form?
a - Peter is good at teaching math (mathematics).
b - My wife is good at giving orders to others, but not at receiving them.
c - I'm good at teaching English.
2) Must be good in be only followed by a noun?
a - Peter is good in Math.
b - My wife is good in the kitchen.
c - I'm good in English.
3) Can be good at and be good in be used interchangeably?
a - I'm good at teaching English.
b - I'm good in teaching English.
c - I'm good at English.
d - I'm good in English.
4) It is supposed that other than the adjective good, others adjectives can be used with these idioms, isn't it?
a - I'm bad at teaching philosophy.
b - She's the best at learning French.
c - They're the worst in grammar.
Asking for your assistance and help in this matter.

I asked you in the last thread to ask one question at a time, and then ask follow-up questions as necessary.
I am closing this thread before it goes the way of the other one. If you wish to try again, start a fresh thread - with one question. If you ask your third question, there will be no need for the first two.
