Ni hao, wo jiao Novita
I wanna ask what's the difference between "hai" and "ye" when they're used for the meaning of "also".
Thank you for your attention.

Dear Novita,
Thanks for your good question. We will post a video about the two words soon.
“Yě” and ”hái” both can be used for the same subject doing two things. But “yě” could also be used for two subjects doing the same thing.
For example, 
Wǒ yào qù Shànghài,yě yào qù Běijīng.
Wǒ yào qù Shànghǎi,hái yào qù Běijīng.
Wǒ yào qù Shànghài,tā yě yào qù Shànghǎi.

Thank you for letting us know about this.
The Pinyin for “一起” should be “yìqǐ.” We will correct it as soon as possible.
