Time 4 - gleich, bald, später, nachher and more

A fun look at German time adverbs that refer to the future like jetzt, bald and demnächst, see what time frame they refer to. Also: the difference between "bis gleich" and "bis bald".

Vocab:

jetzt, später, sofort, nachher, bald, demnächst


Word Family

The core idea of this root was:

apart, separated, by oneself

It’s the origin of English asunder as well as the imports sans (without) and sin (without) as in chili sin carne.

On the German side, we have two very important offspring  – sich and sondern.
