well: 1 SATISFACTORILY in a successful or satisfactory way
Did you sleep well?
James reads quite well for his age.
All the team played very well today.
Simon doesn’t work well under pressure.
The festival was very well organized.
The concert went very well.
Normally, we say "A sport team plays well", "he slept well", "he reads and writes well", "he studies well".
But, say, a boy is playing with his toys comfortably and quietly without bothering you. And we don't mean he is very skillful at playing some specific difficult toys such as lego for example.
When I literally translated that idea from my mother tongue into English, it'll be "play well and let me do my things ok boy!".
And, in some other situations, I say "eat well, ok boy" to mean "the boy eats up all the food in an obeyable way without throwing it or spit it out or ruin the meal"
Could we say "eat well" and "play well" like that?
