How would one say: The students heard well afterwards? Possible context: Speakers during the lecture were broken, they got fixed, students can hear well now :)

"Elevene hørte godt etterpå."

It's also common to phrase it as "Elevene hørte godt etter (at) X", with X being whatever happened to cause them to hear better, just as you could rephrase your context example in that manner in English: "The students heard well after the speakers had been fixed".

I’m the US, you might equally likely hear “the students paid close attention.”

I swear to god she says "Eleven" and not "Elevene"

Yes, the fast audio is wrong.

What is the etter for? Can I omit it?
