    What is the meaning of 'still'?

    I wonder what the word 'still' is the exact meaning.
    and why there is a pause after 'still'.

    This is in the English text book for the 8th grade in middle school in Korea.

    I can't believe that I have been in Korea for almost two years already. I have learned and done so much. My life here really isn't different from back in New York. There are just a lot of little differences. Still, sometimes they confuse me. On of those differences is names.
    -----------------------------------

    Thank you very much in advance. ^^

    I think it can be interpreted as "however"/"nevertheless".

    That "Still" means nevertheless, however. There usually is a pause after words like however, but, etc.
