Transitions, additional, information

Some transition words and phrases connect ideas by adding information:

      in addition       additionally        furthermore         too         also        as well        what's more        besides

Most of these words and phrases are used at the beginning of a sentence or a clause. Here are two examples:

     Country life is more quite and peaceful than city life. In addition, it is better for your health.

     The internet makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and relatives. Furthermore, it provides instant access to news and information. 

We can use also either at the beginning or end of a sentence or clause, or it can come before the verb. Too and as well are generally used at the end of the clause.

      The best way to manage weight is to exercise regularly. You should pay attention to your diet as well.
