    nave success "glad for you"

    If someone achieved success, what would you say "glad for you", "happy for you" or "give you high five". The thing is some pople down my way say that the first two are incorrect.???

    Re: nave success "glad for you"

    Congratulations! I'm so happy for you!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I wouldn't have said the other way. Are there any other ways of saying it?

    "I'm (so) glad for you" is fine with me, though I'd probably say, "I'm (very/so) happy for you" myself.
