Hello everybody, I have a doubt: Is it correct to say "well good luck"? if so, what is the difference between it and very good luck?? If any...
 
Thanks in advance...

Hi Sabri,
 
The word "well" in your sentence is an interjection and it is just there for effect. You can take it out and still have a good sentence. Sometimes people say it when they are trying to end a conversation or change the subject of the conversation. Also, it could mean, "I know that what you are doing is a chanllenge, and you may not succeed, but good luch anyway."
 
When we say, "very good luck," we are wishing the person the very best luck that he/she can have.  I hope this helps.
