I’ve always heard people from Mexico City pronounce the first S when they say después. Is it not that way other places? Thanks for posting pronunciations! 🙂

Tips to remember “después”:
– Associate “después” with the phrase “day after” because “después” begins with “des-” and can remind you of “day” in English.
– Think of “pues” in “después” as “then” or “after” since “pues” is sometimes used in the context of reasoning or explaining something that follows.
– Visual mnemonic: Imagine a calendar and a specific day marked as “Día Especial” (Special Day). Then envision turning to the next day, and think “Después” to signify the day after the “Día Especial.”

“Después” is an adverb of time used in Spanish to indicate an action that occurs later than the time being referred to, equivalent to “after” or “afterward” in English. It can also suggest a sequence of events.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– “Luego”: often interchangeable with “después” meaning “later” or “afterward.”
– “Posteriormente”: a more formal synonym, meaning “subsequently” or “following afterwards.”
– “Más tarde”: translates to “later,” referring to a later point in time.

Alternate meanings/slang:
– “Después” does not typically carry slang meanings, but in some contexts, it can be used informally to put off a decision or action, similar to saying “later” in English in a procrastinating way.

Examples of sentences:
– “Vamos a comer ahora y después iremos al cine.” (We are going to eat now, and afterwards we’ll go to the movies.)
– “Primero termina tus deberes y después juega.” (First finish your homework, and then play.)
– “Después de la lluvia, salió el sol.” (After the rain, the sun came out.)
– “Te llamaré después para confirmar la hora de la reunión.” (I’ll call you later to confirm the meeting time.)
– “Hablemos de ese asunto después; ahora tenemos prisa.” (Let’s talk about that matter later; we’re in a hurry now.)
