It is an expression used to praise or acknowledge something someone is saying. For ex:- If someone tells you about the new course they've taken up. You can reply with 'Good for you!' Although it is nowadays used in a sarcastic way as well. Happy Learning!

The phrase can be used in different ways depending on how people use it. It can either literally mean what it sounds like, a congratulatory phrase, Or it can also be used as a rude or sarcastic remark, in a negative way.

It is like saying 'That's great' or 'Congratulations"

Language Expert

"Good for you!" This can be used in seriousness, such as Bruno said. It can either mean "Congratulations!" and "That's great!", or as a word of praise. The phrase can also be used sarcastically, especially if delivered with an overly enthusiastic tone
