    all

    Can one say:
    1-We went there all.
    instead of:
    2-We all went there.


    Can one say:
    3-We went there all to see the match.
    instead of:
    4-We all went there to see the match

    Re: all

    No, keep the "all" in the position you have it in with sentences 2 and 4.

    There is a slightly literary version: We went there, one and all.

    But don't use that to simply say "We all went there."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
