Tips to remember the Russian word 'спустя':
1. Think of 'sponge' (спонж) absorbing time and then letting it pass through.
2. Recall 'спутать' (to tangle up), as in time gets tangled and then moves past.
3. Remember the sound similarity to “spusty” like “spusty time” (after time passes).

'Спустя' is used primarily to mean 'after a certain amount of time has passed' or 'later.' It indicates that some time has elapsed since an event occurred.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– 'Через' (cherez) – often means ‘after’ or 'in (a certain amount of time)'
– 'По прошествии' (po proshestvii) – a more formal way to say 'after' or 'upon the passing'
– 'После' (posle) – means 'after,' can be used interchangeably in some contexts but isn't always the best fit for 'спустя'

Alternate meanings like slang:
'Спустить' (to lower or to let down) shares the root with 'спустя,' though it’s not slang but can be useful in recognizing verb forms related to 'спустя.'

Examples of sentences that use it:
1. Спустя пять минут, он вернулся. (Spustya pyat' minut, on vernulsya.)
Translation: Five minutes later, he returned.

2. Мы встретились вновь спустя годы. (My vstretlis' vnov' spustya gody.)

3. Спустя некоторое время, они начали понимать. (Spustya nekotoroe vremya, oni nachali ponimat'.)
Translation: After some time, they began to understand.

4. Она пришла спустя час после работы. (Ona prishla spustya chas posle raboty.)
