French Word Vachement

The French word vachement means EXTREMELY, VERY or TRULY

French word vachement means TRULYVache is the French word for COW,so using the French word VACHEMENT makes you think you’re saying, “Cowly!” — but in fact, it’s quite different.

The word vachement really made me scratch my head when I first heard it and read it.

It also made me smile — a lot — and it’s a great little French adverb I now use ALL the time :-)

It works equally well with adjectives (descriptors) and verbs (“doing” words”).


“Il fait beau!” (translated to “It’s a beautiful day!”) becomes even better when you say:

  • “Il fait vachement beau!” which translates to “It’s a VERY beautiful day!”
