Schematics are used to describe electronic circuits to other people. For the most part they are a universal language that will cross most language barriers.
When viewing a schematic the first thing to know is when wires cross or when they are tied together.
Capacitors generally are always some form of symbol showing 2 plates parallel to each other. The old capacitor symbol most likely dates back to the fact that at first scientists were unsure if the electrons are being stored in the dielectric between the plates or in the plates themselves. Later it has been decided that the dielectric simply acts as a insulator and electrons are stored on the metal plates of a capacitor.
