Hi guys, first of all thank you very much to all of the Ukranian team for all the hard work that you have put in and keep putting into the course.

I wanted to clear up a doubt I've got between the uses and meanings of these 2 words.

From my own research: Добрий - good добре - well

is this correct?

With the caveat that I'm a fellow learner: I think добре is both the adverb (well) and the neuter form of the adjective (good), which might be why there's confusion/doubt?

Hopefully someone with more knowledge can corroborate and clarify, and I don't know why your post got downvoted :-/

Exactly, добре is both the adverb (e.g. Він виконав роботу добре -- He's done the work well) and the neuter form of the adjective (добре серце -- kind/warm heart). The other forms of the adjective in nominative case are добрий and добра (добрий хлопчик, добра дівчина).
