Tips to remember the French word “gauche”:

– Associate “gauche” with the English word “go,” as in “go left”β€”though they don’t sound the same, the “g” can help remind you.
– Think of “gauche” as the “not right” direction, playing on the dual meaning of “right” as a direction and being correct.
– Remember the saying “left is last,” as “gauche” starts with “g” just like “go” or “get going” and left is typically not the direction we often take.


– “Gauche” is the French word for the direction “left,” directly opposite of “droite,” which means “right.”

Other words that mean the same thing:

– “Sinistre” is another French word that can mean “left,” but it is quite archaic and nowadays more commonly means “sinister.”

Alternate meanings like slang:

– “Gauche” can also mean “awkward” or “clumsy” when describing someone’s behavior in French, similar to the English word “gauche” which has been borrowed from French.

Examples of sentences that use it:

– “Tournez Γ  gauche au prochain carrefour.” (Turn left at the next crossroads.)
– “Il est un peu gauche quand il s’agit de parler en public.” (He is a bit awkward when it comes to public speaking.)
– “Ma main gauche est moins forte que ma main droite.” (My left hand is less strong than my right hand.)
