: : What does 'way to go' exactly mean? Please explain with example.
: "Way to go" when used as an interjection means "you've done a good job".
: Example: You've just scored a goal in soccer/football. Your teammates jump up and down, slapping you and saying stuff like "Yeah!", "Yes!", "Woo hoo!", and "Way to go!".
It's short for "That's the way to go!" - meaning, roughly, "What you did was a good thing to do." ~rb
