What does c'est curieux mean?


The literal meaning is:

"C'est curieux" is the common way to express "It's curious" in French and it's fine in most contexts.

How to use

Use it exactly like you would use "It's curious" in English. If you want something more informal, you can use instead "C'est chelou".

To highlight how curious this is, you can also add the word "Grave" (Seriously) before the word "Curieux" which makes the sentence informal. Or you can add instead "Très" (Very) or "Vraiment" (Really) to keep the sentence formal/neutral.
