     Jose alem da explicação da Ana vou lhe dar algumas dicas sobre o still

 

     Idea of still: A situation continues to exist from past to present without change.

 

Ex1) It was cold yesterday. It is still cold today. We still nedd to wear coats.    

 

Ex2) I coud play the piano when I was a child. I can still play the piano.

 

Ex3) The mail didn't come an hour ago. The mail still hasn't come.

 

Obs: In negative sentences, still and yet express similar meanings. The meanings of I haven't finished it yet and I still haven't finished are similar.

 

 

    I hope these example above can help you!
