Heel goede


Explanation:
Is dat niet van de Spaans?
Mijn hollanse is een beetje oud, maar ik denke dat het word van Zuid America is (Argentina) voor het Engels word "Cool".

great; cool


Explanation:
sorry can't help you with the Dutch, but this is Latin American Spanish (Cuban, if I'm not mistaken) slang meaning <great> or <cool>. Maybe someone can give you the Dutch from there.

chevere in Colombian Spanish means "nice" or ..


Explanation:
.. "cool" (in today's US slang) or any such positive expression. However, I have no clue what you really want. The word CHEVERE simply reminds me of what my Colombian daugher-in-law exclaims every time she has a happy experience.
