What does ouep mean?


You probably know that the classic way to say "Yes" in French is "oui", but there are other variations. For example: "Ouep" is the slang version of "Oui" and is generally translated as "Yep".

But as you will see below, it doesn't fit every situation, so be careful of the context before using it. If not used appropriately, there is a high chance of irritating the person you are talking with or making a poor first impression.

How to use it

A relative / a friend asks you if your exam went well, you can say: "Ouep, facile" (Yep, easy).

The judge asks you if you were at home during the night of the 17th of July, you say: "Oui" (Yes). But not "Ouep"! Because in a formal situation like this (with a judge, a teacher, a boss...), it sounds very provocative and you might get into trouble.

If you want a solution between "Oui" and "Ouep", then you can use "Ouais" (Yeah). It's fine in most situations, except very formal ones, and commonly accepted in daily life.

A rule of thumb: if you say "vous" to the person because you are showing respect, use "Oui". If you say "tu" to the person, then you can use "Ouais". And in case you need to be even more informal, you can use "Ouep" (Yep) instead.
