Is this used for complimenting based on health or good looks? (like your grandfather vs your girl/boyfriend's fancy outfit)


Probably both, although the good looks option seems more probable. Somehow I imagine that if someone told me that I look healthy, they wouldn't use 'bardzo', but that's just my feel.


I share the intuition about "bardzo dobrze" when complimenting heath in general, however if someone is looking healthier than expected, "bardzo dobrze" would be perfectly reasonable to use (for example, seeing your grandfather recovered from a serious illness, or him looking simply very healthy considering his age).


If it's about looks it would be "good" rather than "well", ("You look good in that dress"), so perhaps "good" should be accepted here as well (if it's not already).

It might be objected that the adverb "dobrze" should be reflected by "well", but in fact "well" is not an adverb here but an adjective, "look" being a linking verb. So gramatically it would make no difference.


Colloqially: sometimes means it looks like you have gained weight... You are looking well = you are by no means starving to death. It's a euphemism.


Now that the essons are getting harder I want to reduce my target tl 2 lessons per day. How do I do thT?


On the browser version: your avatar (right top corner) -> Settings -> Coach -> Regular (two lessons = 20 EXP) -> Save Changes


Look very well. How would this be said


Do you mean, in the imperative mood?

Wyglądaj/Wyglądajcie bardzo dobrze.

But I have no idea why or when someone would say that.


In english this means you put on weight since i last saw you


In the Polish Grandma language, it means the same.
