    necessity of 'as well'

    Hi,

    - Just as she and you went to the cinema yesterday, I now want to go to the cinema as well!
    - Like you and her, I want to go to the cinema as well!

    I tried to write such two sentences. I would like to ask if I must put two 'as wells' in the sentences or not.

    Thank you.

    Re: necessaty of 'as well'

    It's certainly not necessary in the second sentence. The first sentence starts badly (grammatically) so it's hard to say whether you need "as well" at the end. Can you rewrite the first sentence and we'll have another go.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    So many thanks, but I do not know why the first sentence is grammatically bad. So, unfortunately, I cannot rewrite it.

    There's no need for "Just as" at the start.

    You and she went to the cinema yesterday - now I want to go as well!
