Tips to remember the Russian word:
– Imagine someone peering through a small window or door. The word "за" often implies a direction or movement (like "behind" or "beyond"), so think of "глянуть" as "to glance" plus "за" implying a quick look inside.

– The verb "заглянуть" is used to indicate a brief visit or a quick look into a place or situation. It combines the prefix "за-" (meaning "behind" or "into") with the verb "глянуть" (to glance).

Other words that mean the same thing:
– Прийти: to come
– Навестить: to visit
– Погостить: to stop by (though pогостить usually implies a bit longer stay).

Infinitive: заглянуть (zaglyanut')

– я заглянул/заглянула (ya zaglyanul/zaglyanula)
– ты заглянул/заглянула (ty zaglyanul/zaglyanula)
– он/она/оно заглянул/заглянула/заглянуло (on/ona/ono zaglyanul/zaglyanula/zaglyanulo)
– мы заглянули (my zaglyanuli)
– вы заглянули (vy zaglyanuli)
– они заглянули (oni zaglyanuli)

– I don't think this verb is used in present simple form because "to look in" is an instantaneous action that doesn't have a progressive aspect in Russian like English. Usually, a perfective verb like "заглянуть" doesn't form a present tense.

– я загляну (ya zaglyanu)
– ты заглянешь (ty zaglyanish')
– он/она/оно заглянет (on/ona/ono zaglyanet)
– мы заглянем (my zaglyanim)
