"Also" is a more common word and can be used in various positions within a sentence. It is used to add emphasis to a statement or to show that something is included in addition to what has already been mentioned. For example, "I'm allergic to cats. Also, I'm allergic to dogs." In this example, "also" is used to add emphasis to the fact that the person is allergic to both cats and dogs.
"As well" is often used at the end of a sentence, and its meaning is similar to "also". It can also be used in the middle of a sentence, but it is less common. For example, "I like chocolate. I like vanilla as well." In this example, "as well" is used to indicate that the person likes both chocolate and vanilla.
In general, "also" is used more frequently in writing and speech, while "as well" is used more often in British English. However, both words are correct and can be used interchangeably in many situations.
