Still, Already & Yet
Still, Already 和 Yet的用法区别
Hi! I'm Phil from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to tell you the difference between still, already and yet.
大家好！我是BBC英语学习频道的菲尔。今天我们来学习still, already 和 yet三个词的区别。
They all talk about things around the present, but they don't mean the same.
We use still to talk about something that hasn't finished. Are you still studying? Let's go out!
We use already to talk about something that has finished, and maybe we didn't think it would have by now. She's already finished work. She's gone home.
We use yet in questions and negatives to talk about things that haven't happened, but we think they will. Haven't you left yet? You'll be late!
So just remember: Things that are still happening, haven't finished. Things that have already happened, have finished and things that are yet to happen, haven't started.
Are you still watching? Have you learnt this yet? You remember it already? Fantastic!
