Today's Word of the Day is something we should all do as much as possible!

Carcajada is a loud laugh. This word is used to indicate the intensity of the laughter ... Here we have some of examples of how to use it:

  • Ayer conocí a un bebe súper simpático, no hacía más que reírse a carcajadas.

            Yesterday I met a very friendly baby, he kept bursting in laughter!

  • Fuimos a  'El club de la comedia' el viernes pasado. ¡Fue increíble! Nos estuvimos riendo a carcajadas.

           We went to 'The comedy club' last Friday. It was incredible! We laughed our heads off!
