The difference between "bueno" and "bien"
What is the difference between bueno and bien? Is it as simple as good and well? Also, when do you use buen, without an "o"?
bien always goes with estar and bueno always goes with ser. Bueno loses the o when you place that adjective infront of what it is defining. That is a simple general answer.
Buen would be used like for example, buen ....-o. I cant come up with any examples so I think Ill just give some kind of example. Buen muchacho, buen día, buen hombre, buen mapa.
bueno is an adjective, bien is an adverb. Drop the o when bueno comes before a masculine noun. ex: un hotel bueno or un buen hotel. (same thing)
