What's the meaning of 'go all the way (to sth/swh)'? It is written in 'Destination B2' without explanation and I couldn't find it anywhere. Could you please give the definition with some examples?


To go all the way means to continue a progress until its completion, whether that be literally geographical (as a final destination) or not (as in the completion of a task).

Additionally, to "go all the way" (at least in American English) has a sexual connotation of achieving coitus.

  • As a footnote, it's usually a standalone expression, that is, the "to something" or "to somewhere" is typically omitted. – J.R. Jan 13 at 22:21
