Tips to Remember the Russian Word:
– Visualize a calendar, focusing on the day before today. Associate that day with "вчера" (včera).
– Think of the English word "watches" (which has a "ch" sound similar to "č" in "včera") to remind yourself of the concept of time and looking back.

– "Вчера" (včera) is an adverb in Russian used to denote the day before today.

Other Words that Mean the Same Thing:
– "На кануне" (na kanune) can also mean "the day before" in some contexts but isn’t a direct substitute for "вчера".

Alternate Meanings Like Slang:
– "Вчерашний день" (včerašnij den') is a phrase sometimes used metaphorically to indicate something outdated or old-fashioned.

Examples of Sentences that Use It:
1. Я вчера был в кино. (Ja včera byl v kino.) – I was at the cinema yesterday.
2. Вчера было очень жарко. (Včera bylo očen' žarko.) – It was very hot yesterday.

Tips to remember the Russian word:
– Picture a time when you look back at something that happened, invoking a sense of nostalgia. Connect the sound "vcher" in "вчера" (vchera) with looking back or reflecting on the past.

– The word "вчера" (vchera) is a straightforward adverb in Russian that means "yesterday." It describes something that occurred on the day prior to today.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– "Предшествующий день" (predshestvuyushchiy den') which translates to "the preceding day." This is a more formal way to say "yesterday."

Alternate meanings like slang:
– In slang or casual speech, "вчера" (vchera) might be used similarly to English to vaguely refer to something that happened in the past, not just specifically the day before.
