How do you say awkward in french?

9 Answers

  • There’s no French equivalent for the word “awkward,” rather, different words are used in different situations.

    An awkward person, as in clumsy, is “maladroit” (or “maladroite” if it’s a girl)

    An awkward situation, as in embarassing, is embarassant(e) or gênant(e).

    An awkward situation, as in uncomfortable, is delicat(e) or difficile.

    The word “gauche” can also be used to mean awkward as in clumsy or uncomfortable.

    How do you say awkward in french?


    i personally like the french kiss. but there are times when i don’t want tongue. as for tips on what to do next time, if you 2 have been dating for a while and are at the point where you start to talk about almost everything then just talk to him about it. Was it his first french as well? because if it was then that could explain it, he might have been nervous OR if it wasn’t his first then maybe he just really likes it, talk to him, communication is key to keeping a relationship going, trust me!….. oh ya he probably noticed, it isn’t that hard to tell.

  • Nate and Gracie gave you all you need to know. To the list, I add: drole.

    It was an awkward situation. Next Sarkosky I forgot my French.

    Ce fut une situation drole. Pres de Sarkosky, j’ai oublie mon francais.

  • he was probably just a nervous as you. I can pretty much guarantee that if you explain why you pulled away he’ll immediately say “Yeah I didn’t really mean to get that aggressive.” If you’re the only girl he’s ever french kissed then that should decrease the tension so that you can learn together without the pressure that would be involved if he was much more experienced than you. There’s not really a wrong way to do it, it’s all a matter of taste. Anyone who says a given person was a ‘bad kisser’ is only saying that because the two of them didn’t like to kiss the same way, and the person they kissed probably thinks the first person is the one who’s a bad kisser.

  • It depends on what you mean.

    If something physically doesn’t fit or work right, I might say “difficile” or “mauvais”

    If someone has social issues I might call them “maladroit”

    If something is embarrasing I would say “embarrasant”

  • You can simply say french,since that language is awkward itself.
