Kudos + Sweet!

"KUDOS" basically means to give someone recognition. It’s exactly like saying, “Well done!” or “Congratulations”.
SWEET (phonetically: Suh-weet) is slang for great/ nice/ cool/ cute/ beautiful/ awesome/ amazing/ wonderful/ excellent etc. See  for a more complete definition of the above words.

1. Sweeet! Kudos to you on your new car. It’s really cool.

2. Kudos to Russia and Qatar for winning their bid to host the 2018 and 2022 world cups. I especially think that Qatar’s stadiums are sweet. Take a look at the virtual tour of Qatar’s proposed stadiums on Youtube. (Really sweet!).

3. Kudos on getting your scholarship to study in Europe! It’s quite an achievement because there were thousands of other applicants.

4. Kudos to Jim Parsons, the actor who plays Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory. He won the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Take a look at his acceptance speech on Youtube.


  1. Is there any famous person you'd like to say, "Kudos to you!" to?

  2. Hello, it is me again

    This is a really cumbersome expression to learn, what's the correct grammar for this word (kudos I mean), "kudos to" or "kudos on"? Is it formal or informal, that is, can a president of a country say kudos?

  3. Kudos... or Kudos to... I think you already know the answer to the 2nd question...
