    tommy swims as well as dances very well

    Iím wondering if the below answer to the synthesis question is correct.

    Question: Tommy swims very well. He dances very well too.
    My answer: Tommy swims as well as dances very well.

    The words Ď as well así must be used.

    Thank you!

    Re: tommy swims as well as dances very well

    I was just wondering if the following sentence could be an appropriate alternative solution: "Tommy is very good at swimming as well as at dancing."

    I like this one better than your first. The last "at" is not needed.

    Re: tommy swims as well as dances very well

    You can also say "As well as swimming very well, Tommy dances very well."

    A slightly contentious version is "Tommy dances as well as he swims". The assumption would be that he is good at both but a pedant will point out that he could actually be bad/terrible at both.
    I might say "I play the piano as well as I tap dance". If the listener knows I can't tap dance, he/she would know that I also can't play the piano.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
