These words are all used to show similarity or sameness:

  • Jeff plays soccer. Greg plays soccer, too.
  • Jeff plays soccer. Greg also plays soccer.
  • Jeff plays soccer. Greg plays soccer as well.

The only difference is in their placement in the sentence. Too and as well are used at the end of a sentence. (As well is more formal than too). Also usually goes before the verb or adjective.

He likes chocolate.

  • I also like chocolate.
  • I like chocolate also.
  • I like chocolate, too.
  • I like chocolate as well.

The apples are delicious.

  • The pears are also delicious.
  • The pears are delicious also.
  • The pears are delicious, too.
  • The pears are delicious as well.

The expression as well as can be used in the middle of the sentence, and is similar to “and” or “not only… but also”:

  • She bought the necklace. She bought the earrings.
  • She bought the necklace and the earrings.
  • She bought the necklace as well as the earrings.
  • She bought not only the necklace, but also the earrings.

You can also rephrase this to use also, too, or as well:

  • She bought the necklace. She also bought the earrings.
  • She bought the necklace. She bought the earrings, too.
  • She bought the necklace. She bought the earrings as well.
