These four words all have the meaning of so far or up to now. The three necessary elements to look out for are if it's positive or negative, what the position is in the sentence, and if they require a particular verb tense.
Let's start with yet. It's often used with the present duo with a negative or a question. It's at the end of the sentence.
He hasn't learned to dance yet.
Already is the opposite of yet. They both have the sense of before now, but already has a feeling of being early, whereas yet has a feeling of something being late. It can be in the middle or the end of a sentence.
Still is a continuation of a situation, used with any tense and is positive or negative. It is in the middle of the sentence.
She is still learning how to dance.
Anymore is the opposite of still and has the idea that something has been discontinued. It's used with a negative word (not, never). It comes at the end of the sentence. It's the same as no longer.
She doesn't dance anymore. / She no longer dances.
