    Question Make achievement or something else?

    What verb would go with achievement, make or something else?

    What about: "You have made a remarkable achievement!"

    Yes, your suggested sentence is fine.

    It's certainly understandable but reads unnatural to me. I would use "You have accomplished a remarkable achievement" or I would say "Your achievement is remarkable".

    Edit: I'm in Canada.
