If something is "wonderful," that means it’s very good. This adjective is used a little too much, in my opinion, but because "wonderful" is so common in English, you need to know how it’s used and why. Here are some examples:

  • Isn’t this wonderful? (This is very good!)
  • It’s wonderful to see you again! (I’m happy to see you.)
  • I have some wonderful news I want to share with you.
  • Theresa says she feels wonderful after recovering from a broken leg.
  • This cake has a wonderful flavor.
  • Minnesota is a wonderful place for a summer vacation.
  • The people who painted our house did a wonderful job.
  • That was a wonderful movie. We should go see it a second time.
  • You are a wonderful person!

The word "wonderfully" is an adverb.

  • She played her part on the team wonderfully.
  • The play we saw last night was wonderfully performed.
  • A Tesla is a wonderfully made car.
