    FEEL WELL or GOOD

    Yet, with FEEL we use both GOOD and WELL, yet their meanings will be different.

    I feel good – I’m happy, I’m in a good mood.

    I feel well – I’m not sick, I’m in a good health.

    MIND: we say TO FEEL BAD (not badly) to talk either about our health or our mood.

    ???

    Have you ever heard such a conversation?

    How are you doing?

    -Good.

    Oops… Do is a verb, logically, we got to use WELL here…

    Yep. it’s American English and they often use GOOD as a verb. So, don’t roll your eyes when you here:

    I’m doing GOOD.

    How’s it going? GOOD.

    And if you’re gonna live in the states, use the same phrases to blend in.

    Let’s check these two examples from animation movie Despicable Me 2.
