  • Hi! I'm Phil from BBC Learning English.

  • Today, I'm going to tell you the difference between

  • 'still', 'already' and 'yet'.

  • 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!
