    Question way to go

    CONGRATULATIONS IN ADVANCE TO MOONZ ON COMPLETING 1000 POSTS. WAY TO GO.


    Hi! The sentences I quoted above were written by one of our fellow members.

    I found the definition of "way to go" in online Urban Dictionary, which defines it as "Congratulations- good job!".

    Urban Dictionary: way to go

    I think it aslo implies "go ahead". Am I right? Thanks!

    When used in this way, it is usually taken to mean congratulations.

    The way to go = the direction to take.

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you for your answer. I have two related questions.

    1. Since "way to go" means congraduations, then would it redundant in that context because the first sentence has expressed "congraduations"?

    2. If someone did a good job, and I'd like to say congraduations and let he/she keep on doing it in the same or better way. Is there any colloquial words for this?

    Is it okay to say "Way to go and move on"?
