25 – Still vs Yet – English Grammar Lesson

Masamune Grammar 9 Comments


I still love looking at Grand Central Station!

Still & Yet can be tricky to use for many English learners. Let’s have a look at how these two adverbs are used in English.

Here are the example sentences

We use still when we want to show that some situation started in the past and continues to now. We use still in positive sentences and questions like this:

  • It was warm yesterday and it is still warm today.
  • I was born in New York and I still live here.
  • I remember you played tennis in high school. Do you still play?

We use yet when we want to refer to something that did not happen before now, but we think or know it will happen in the future. We use yet in negative sentences and questions like this:

  • It’s warm outside, but it is not summer yet.
  • My friends tell me I have not grown up yet.
  • I went to Vietnam once, but I haven’t been back yet.
Here are the answers to yesterday’s listening challenge questions
  • In the USA, elementary school kids play baseball and soccer
  • Michael’s sister does Karate. She also runs and does yoga twice a week
Here is today’s listening challenge question
  • What did Michael enjoy doing when he was a child?
