can I just get online lessons? my mandarin isn’t good enough for live lessons

I like learning Mandarin Chinese online. I’ve got a question: how do I use “才?”

I want to learn Chinese in a higher level ’cause I am Chinese Department’s graduated student. Just long time no use Chinese, so I want to review.Thank you very much.

“才” means “only” or “just” and indicates that something is less than expected, to a certain extent. For example: “她才十二岁就获得了国际大奖。(Tā cái shíèrsuì jiù huòdé le guójì dàjiǎng.) She won an international prize when she was only twelve.”

What does “从始至终” mean?
