"yet" is used to describe something that has not happened, but will happen in the future. For example:

I am not tired yet. It is only six o'clock.

"already" describes something that happened in the past. Usually it is used when you want to tell someone why you don't want to do something. For example:

I am not hungry. I already ate.

I don't know if this helps or not. What is your native language? Smile

Well, I don't speak Portuguese, but I'm glad I could help. Also, if you want to say you live in Brazil now, you should say "at the moment", not "in a moment". "In a moment" means something that will happen very soon. For example

"I am going to leave in a moment" is the same as "I am going to leave in a minute" or "I am going to leave very soon".

Goodbye! Laughing [/i]

hi! my name is alexius and I am from the united states. i just wanted to let you know of some corrections you could make!

instead of

"Thanks very much Meg, you help me a lot!!! sometimes have simple things that shake our mind.
Well, I am from Portugal, but in a moment I am living in Brazil cause my job do this things, sometimes I am here sometimes I am there. Last year I was in United States.
Thanks one more time
See you"

your message should have been something such as

"Thanks very much, Meg, you [/i]helped me a lot!!!"
" sometimes I have simple things that shake my mind (if you meant yourself) " or "sometimes we have have simple things that shake our minds! (if you meant everyone)"
"Well, I am from portugal, but
at the moment I live in Brazil cause my job does this thing so that sometimes I am here, sometimes I am there. Last year I was in the United States.
Thanks one more time
see you"

if you have any questions with anything, I would be glad to help, even though I do not speak portugese :)

talk to you later!

-Alexius
