    Re: Difference in usage

    1. Both can be used interchangeably:

    - I can play tennis.
    - Alan can as well/too.

    a. Too is used as adverbs modifying adjectives:

    - This suitcase is too heavy I cannot lift it.

    b. As well (as) used for comparison:

    Ahmad cannot speak English as well as I (can).

    Notice: There is a comma (,) before too
    John plays handball. Michael plays handball, too
