Showing Approval of Someone's Answer to a Question

Postby wandertheway_516497 » May 14th, 2017 10:12 am

Context: A teacher is quizzing a student. What sorts of words or phrases might they use to show their approval of an answer?

Example #1
Teacher: Do you understand?
Student: I understand.
Teacher: Good. <-- (What might this be in Japanese?)

Example #2
Teacher: Please pronounce the word "wakarimasu"
Student: (says the word)
Teacher: Good. <-- (What might this be in Japanese?)

Specifically, I'm wondering if all or just a few of the below words would work or if any of them would not make sense for the situation.

よかった - yokatta
いい - ii
上出来 - jyou deki
良くやった - yoku yatta
良くできました - yoku dekimashita
良くやったね - yoku yattane

Thanks so much!

 さん、
こんにちは。
If I were a teacher, I would say いいですね in the first situation.

I would say 良くできました in the second situation.
:D
