    What's the difference with 'Together with' and 'Together as' ?

    What's the difference with 'Together with' and 'Together as' ?


    Thank you.

    Edit-----------

    Next, get out and play. Kicking a ball about is fun, and it is also a great way to spend time together as a family.


    I've read this sentence.
    It's in a FCE exam practice book.

    'Together with' is quite a common collocation; 'together as' is not.

    It's "together - as a family" not "together as".

    together with a family = person + family
    together as a family = the members of the family
