2 questions, 还 \ 也 , and 了
hi. i have a couple of questions.
1. could someone please tell me the difference in use of 还 and 也 ?
2. also im wondering how to use 了 (change of state) in the sentences that talk about the future. one example
do i need the 了 in this sentence, because its a change of state, or dont i use 了 like that while talking about the future.
please use an example if you have a little bit of time, so i can understand the differences easilier. thanks

1. In the simplest cases, 还 corresponds to "still" and 也 corresponds to "also." Some examples:
I still haven't been to China.
I also like Chinese food.
There are some other uses which I'm not an expert on, but these are the simplest (and I believe most common) uses.
I'm not too sure about your second question. Hopefully, someone else can shed some light on it.
