“Jiji” is to Spanish what the words “haha” is to English.
“Jiji” is an onomatopoeia, or written sound, and this word is used to denote someone laughing out loud. In English, there are a few different ways that we can express we are laughing. We might say “lol” or “hehe” – it is the same in Spanish.
In Spanish, people might write “jeje” or even “jaja”. You will likely come across these phrases on social networking sites, since it is an informal way of conversing with friends and family.
The letter “j” makes the “h” sound in Spanish, so if you say the words out loud in Spanish, they do not sound that much different to the English versions.
