This relates to:
Il, elle, ils, elles = it, he, she, they -

Yes, "c'est très bon" is perfectly OK but it  is a more general statement. "Il est très bon" refers to a specific subject.

Hi Jane,


Could you give some context to your query as  'il est très bon' is often used incorrectly for 'c'est très bon'?
