    And = as well as?

    Hello, I have read this thread on 'as well as'. https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...-use-well.html

    However, I also remember reading a grammar book that stipulates the following:

    'John as well as I am going there too ' rather than 'John and I are going there too'.

    Is this the right rule?

    By the way, is 'John and I are going there too' right?

    Thank you.

    It should be "John and I are..."

    Thank you. Do you mean 'John as well as I' sounds odd and should not be used?
