    Smile also too as well, difference?

    well, as you can see in the title of this thread, I'm going to ask you about the difference about this "additional" conjunctions.
    I suppose (better: feel) that as well and too can be exchangeable, whilst "also" can be added only in statements built of two periods having the same subject (I play Tennis and I also play Backgammon).
    Is it correct?
    thank you for you answer

    "I play Tennis and I also play Backgammon."
    "I play Tennis and I play Backgammon too."
    "I play Tennis and I play Backgammon as well."
    These are all possible.

    I suppose (better:or rather, I feel) that "as well" and "too" can be interchangeable, whilst "also" can be added only in statements built of two periods having the same subject (I play Tennis and I also play Backgammon).

    I play tennis and I also play backgammon.
    I play tennis as well as backgammon.
    I play tennis, and I play backgammon too.

    Note that we don't use a capital letter for most sports. We do, however, start every new sentence with a capital letter.

    Thank you for your explanation, teachers.Your job is really outstanding.
    Ehm, yeah, I know that in English gramar every new statement must start with capital letter as well as in Italian one, but some mistake is due to tiredness.
    Thank you again.
