English Expressions: Way to go!

Dialogue

Sally: Unlike his

dad who is all thumbs, Rob is a handy boy. He never throws away any second hand tool. For him even the smallest screw can serve a purpose.

Sarah: I wish I had a boy like Rob. It takes forever to get things fixed never mind the fact that I spend a fortune on that. Currently, my TV is on the blink.

Sally: Why don’t you get a new one and spare yourself the trouble?

Sarah: To say I’ve had enough of those broken stuff is an understatement! I’ve already ordered a new one.

Sally: Way to go!

    @Muhamad Khalid ahhhh don’t feel that way. These are more informal dialogues and to make you sound more native when your speaking . I say, just check out the vocabulary and be familiar with the different phrase . You will be fine!
