At our Chinese course we learned about "cái" and "jiù" meaning" only or "just". (Of course they have a lot of other meanings.) I didn't understand in which situation which of them have to use. How to apply them correctly?

Would you help me? Thanks forward:

“才”most time be used as adversative.u can understand that when you achieve sth conditions then you are able to do sth .(when u ...,you "cai"...).
I am not good at English,hope you can understand above that.have a good time.
"就”is also transitional word like "才",but difference between two things is "才" emphases a kind emotion that you wanna do sth but don't have necessary and sufficent conditions,you need achieve the conditions first then you can do sth you wanna do.and “就” place more stress on you already achieve the conditions and decided to do or not .

Dear Bing, thanks for your answer. Wǒ yě bù tài hǎo zài Yíng yǔ:-)
