Daphany’s Free Online Writing Workshop



  1. Unsociable or shy and socially awkward.
  2. Disorderly or intimidating in appearance or behavior; wild.
  3. Outrageous or extreme.

In French, “farouche” can mean wild or shy, just as it does in English.


I’ll use it in a sentence:

● As a car salesperson, you can’t be farouche or afraid to speak with potential new customers.

● Our entire family was incredulous, by Denise’s decision to date the farouche, ostentatious, exotic male dancer.

● Because the owner’s dog, repeatedly growled and demonstrated truculent behavior toward the the veterinarian; the doctor refused to treat the farouche animal.

● Charlene ended the dinner date early, because the farouche Donovan, didn’t talk much and appeared disinterested and disengaged.

  • Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper or in the comment section below, write a few sentences, using the word: farouche.
  • Tip : Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
