What does يا mean? Is it necessary or commonplace among native speakers?

If you learn on computer, you can click on the icon of the lesson and see two symbols in upper right corner: a key and a light bulb. And, if you click on the light bulb, you'll can look at a description of lesson. There is a description of using يا too. Sorry for my English
