“My ears are still ringing.”
You went to a concert last night. The music was really loud, so it hurt your ears. Now you hear a strange noise because of it. You explain it to your roommate.
My ears are still ringing.

After a really loud noise like a live concert, you may start to hear a high-pitched noise. You can also hear it sometimes if you're in a really quiet place. We call this noise "ringing" and use it like this:
My ears are ringing.
There's a ringing in my right ear.
"Ring" is the same verb which describes the sound of a bell:
Whenever the fire alarm started to ring, we'd all shuffle outside and stand in front of the school building.
Use "still" to talk about things that:
- started in the past
- are still going on
- are continuing longer than you expected or hoped
