"Such good English" or "such a good English"?

Hello everyone,

I have come across the sentence "you speak such a good english" in one of the threads of this forum but I was wondering if "you speak such good English" wasn't more correct, given that I have also seen Chilli, who is a native speaker, write "you speak good English"?

Many thanks in advance.

"You speak such a good english." is bad.
"You speak such good english." is better.
"You speak such good English." is better still.
"You speak English so well." is best.

Thanks for enlightening me. :-)

Would you say that "You speak such good English" is awkward in comparison to "You speak English so well"? In other words, how much (in)acceptable is "You speak such good English" in normal speech?

"You speak such good English" is fine. I think Jim listed "you speak English so well" as being the best because it's the most casual and easiest way to express this idea.
