    I have only been studying a short time, but does this not mean 'you are very good'?

    As in oochen meaning very?

    maybe Andrewsco, thank you But it seems to me that is not right, and I heard it on the grapevine that this phrase means * you are handsome*

    First, you spelled that phrase incorrectly. Second, you're both right

    Ты очень хороший can mean a number of things.
    1. You are very good.
    2. You are very handsome (though it's not very frequently used)

    I think you should translate that "You are very nice", cause when people want to say "You're very handsom" they usually add a suffics "-еньк" to the word "хороший".
    So it would be "Ты очень хорошенький" or "Ты очень симпатичный" (the last one sounds better to me).

    ????? No way "хороший" can mean pretty or handsome by itself. хорошенький, yes.

    как вариант:

    you're great - ты замечательный

    you're good/nice - ты хороший (just to express sympathy to another person)

    I don't know why you guys think that you can't say 'ты хороший' to mean 'you're handsome'. You can find this phrase in some movies:
    -Ты, конечно, хороший, но...

    Although I agree with you that it's rarely used.

    Handsome means beautiful. So you're right. I might have been mistaken.

    Yeah, and that means "You are nice (i.e. good person), but...". Not handsome!
    P.S. Handsome means good looking, isn't it?

    But you can say:"Он (очень) хорош собой."
    Хорош собой = good looking

    can't you say it without the собой?

    Like a pretty woman would be : она хороша?

    Well, you can. But that's not obvious what are you talking about. She could be goodlooking, but also she could be good in bed or anything else depending on context.
    When you say "хорош(а) собой" that always means goodlooking.

    Right but in spoken language just хороша (without собой) is way more common.

    Ты думаешь? По-моему, фраза "Он хорош" может значить все что угодно.. И как правило это значит, что он хорош в чем-то. А то и "Хорош, нечего сказать!"

    Дык gender discrimination. "Хороша" в определённом контексте означает, что она красива. А вот "хорош" - вряд ли...
