Long explanation:

'只要...就...' (zhǐyào... jiù...) is a common grammar structure in Mandarin Chinese used to elaborate a conditional situation. It depicts the situation where the occurrence of one action is dependent on the fulfilment of another condition. The '只要' (zhǐyào) part represents the condition, while '就' (jiù) introduces the result that follows once the condition is met. This structure is equivalent to the English 'as long as... then...' or 'whenever... then...'.
