I just wondering what does "ain't" mean, and how to use it.Anyone can tell me?

I'm a Chinese learner, I found the translation isn't that clear,and always confusing.

Ain't is a contraction originally for "am not" and "are not", but now typically meaning "is not", "am not", "are not", "has not", or "have not". In some dialects it is also used as a contraction of "do not", "does not", and "did not", as in I ain't know that. The word is a perennial issue in English usage.
