Latin term or phrase: in media res or in medias res?
I have read this Latin expression with "medias" in English, but they have told me in my Spanish class that the correct one is "in media res".
Can you help me, please?
Thanks a lot!

in medias res
Explanation:
In medias res letteralmente "nel mezzo delle cose"; in senso più ampio, nel vivo del problema, nel cuore della questione, in profondità, ecc.
Es.: prima di addentrarmi "in media res", consentitemi una breve precisazione.
