The word "way" is giving me some trouble in the above phrase.

"Ce serait un bon façon de célébrer su prouesse"? - It would be a good way to celebrate his achievement.

I feel this is very literal. Any ideas? The context is that a family is going to plan a holiday before the eldest son leaves for university.

    Façon is definitely the correct word, but it's "une bonne" façon de célébrer son / sa ...

    and "fêter" is more common in French than "célébrer"
