Hi, all, I would like to know, is it common now to describe a person who can do something very well with the word "super". If not, what words do native speakers usually say in this occasion?I would like to add that both words are very old-fashioned when used to mean "good". "Super" used as "extremely" is much more common.
I think it would be much more likely to say "That was super." referring to what the person just did. You would want to say "You are very good at maths." not "You are very good." so (very, very informally) "You are super good at maths."For example, in a TV program, a child or an adult can work out the complex maths during a very short time, then the host said: " You are super. " Is it common to say so? Thank you.
