Jadear – My Spanish Word Of The Day 3/16/2016


Jadear is a new word for me.  I learned it watching the television series, El Internado Laguna Negra, on Netflix.  Jadear means to gasp for breath, pant, breathe heavily.

El Internado Laguna Negra (The Black Lagoon Boarding School) is a thriller/horror television drama that debuted in Spain in 2007 and ran for 7 seasons.  An elite boarding school is located out in the country near a lagoon and a forest.  Many frightening things occur in the forest.  A mysterious being lives deep in these woods and watches everything that goes on.  The audience cannot see this creature, but can hear it breathing heavily, as if it is out of breath.  ¡El monstruo jadea!  As I watch future episodes, it will be exciting to finally find out what this mysterious creature is and what it looks like.

Here is an 18 second YouTube Video of Monster Breathing.  The breathing on El Internado Laguna Negra does not sound just like this, but you get the idea.

El Internado Laguna Negra is available on Netflix.

¡Hasta Luego!
