Let me show you what I mean. Let’s say I’m teaching a class & I ask the class a question. A student answers the question và his answer is cthua trận but not exactly what I was looking for, I could say, “That’s not quite correct, but you’re on the right trachồng,” meaning that his thinking process was going in the right direction.

The opposite of “on the right track” is on the wrong traông chồng, & this means going in the wrong direction. Again, in terms of progress, not in terms of physical movement, like driving a oto or walking.

For example, let’s imagine that in your country a new law is passed saying that politicians don’t have sầu to obey the law, they can do whatever they want. Well, you could say, “Hmm. This country’s really on the wrong traông chồng,” meaning that the progress and development of the country is moving in a bad or wrong direction.
