    My teachers told me that when they say, "Hey, your Chinese isn't bad!" That means it's good/really good. It's a compliment- not really the same as when we say it in English where it can mean that it's sub par.

    And when they say it's really not bad, that just means it's fantastic.

    Different people have different way to say this,In general,if they say this ,they mean your Chinese is good,but not very very good.


    bucuo means good. It is not very good, but it is good!

    in fact it means you language level is so low than you need a compliment as an encouragement

    Yes, it does, but a little bit above average :-)
