    Yes, you could say that.

    You hear a small child from China, for example, speaking perfect English, and you comment "What good English!"

    What good English!
    Literally this means "What a good example that was, of spoken English!".

    It does not mean that English is good. It means "that" (the speaking that just happened) was "good English".

    Note that this only makes sense immediately after hearing someone speaking English well.
