The only difference is in their placement in the sentence. Too and as well are used at the end of a sentence. (As well is more formal than too). Also usually goes before the verb or adjective.





Also


USE

"Also" is used in positive sentences to add an agreeing thought.

Examples:

Jane speaks French. Sam also speaks French.
I love chocolate. I also love pizza.
Frank can come with us. Nancy can also come with us.

PLACEMENT

"Also" comes after "to be."

Examples:

I am also Canadian.
I was also there.
With verbs other than "to be," "also" comes before single verb forms.

Examples:

I also sing.
He also helped us.
In verb tenses with many parts, "also" comes after the first part and before the second.

Examples:

I have also been to Hong Kong.
I am also studying economics.
Similarly, since modal verbs are usually followed by a second verb, "also" comes after modal verbs.

Examples:

I can also speak French.
I should also be there.




Too


USE

"Too" is used in positive sentences to add an agreeing thought. It has the same meaning as "also," but its placement within the sentence is different.

Examples:

Jane speaks French. Sam speaks French too.
I love chocolate. I love pizza too.
Frank can come with us. Nancy can come with us too.

PLACEMENT

"Too" usually comes at the end of a clause.

Examples:

I am Canadian too.
I can speak French too.
I am studying economics too.
If he wants to go too, he should meet us at 8:00.

IMPORTANT

Although "too" is usually placed at the end of a clause, it can sometimes be used with commas after the subject of the sentence. This is usually only done in formal speech.

Examples:

Mr. Jones wanted the contract. Ms. Jackson, too, thought it was necessary.
Donna is working on a solution to the problem. I, too, am trying to find a way to resolve the conflict.



As well


As well is most commonly used in speech and usually at the end of a clause:

-I wanted chocolate and she wanted chocolate as well!

You can use as well as at the beginning of a sentence. This is generally used in writing.

As well as buying the groceries, she also had to go to the vets and the doctors!




Either


Used in negative sentences instead of "also" or "too":

Examples :

I don't eat meat and my husband doesn't either.
"I've never been to the States." "I haven't either."
They do really good food at that restaurant and it's not very expensive either.
I've never been here before either, so it's all strange to me too.
We certainly don't lead a life of luxury but we're not poor either.
"And the dress that you bought me doesn't fit either!" she shouted as she walked off.
Actually I'm pleased you don't want to go, because I don't either.
I'm not allowed another piece of cake, so you're not either!


"Either" is used in negative sentences to add an agreeing thought.

Examples:

Jane doesn't speak French. Sam doesn't speak French either.
I don't love chocolate. I don't love pizza either.
Frank cannot come with us. Nancy cannot come with us either.

PLACEMENT

"Either" usually comes at the end of a clause.

Examples:

I cannot speak French either.
I am not studying economics either.
I don't want to eat either.
I didn't like the movie either.
Confusing Sentences

Sometimes the first sentence is negative and the agreeing idea is positive.

Examples:

The weather wasn't very appealing. I also wanted to stay home and finish my book. That's why I didn't go to the beach.
The car wasn't expensive, and I needed a way to get around town too. That's why I bought it.

Sometimes the first sentence is positive and the agreeing idea is negative.

Examples:

Jane is too short. She is not a good athlete either. I don't think she would make a good basketball player.
He is lazy. He doesn't study either. That's why he doesn't do well in school.
