2. Confundo still con yet.

RESPUESTAS

Yet se usa con el Present Perfect, mientras que still se usa con
el Present Perfect o con el Present (Simple o Continuous),
dependiendo de su significado.

Still se usa con el Present para decir que una accin o


situacin sigue ocurriendo. Para decir lo mismo en espaol,
usamos la frase seguir haciendo algo o bien usamos
todava. Ejemplos:

I am still studying at school. = Sigo estudiando en el


Instituto. Todava estoy estudiando en el Instituto.
She is still in love with Juan. = Sigue enamorada de
Juan. Todava est enamorada de Juan.

STILL se usa tambin para decir que algo todava no ha


ocurrido y por eso tiene el mismo significado que YET. Pero se
colocan en distintos sitios dentro de la oracin. En espaol se
dice de la misma forma: Todava no he visitado Londres / No
he visitado Londres todava.

STILL se coloca delante del auxiliar: I still havent


visited London.
YET se coloca al final de la oracin: I havent visited
London yet.
