And - 'And' is the most common word used in English and is a linking word in order to add extra information.
Example - We spoke about training, sales and the budget.
Also - 'Also' is also another linking word to add more emphasis or to add an extra idea.
Example - We also spoke about sales projection.
In addition - We don't usually start a sentence with also. If you want to start a sentence with a phrase that means also, you can use In addition, or In addition to this…
Example - In addition to this we discussed about team building.
As well as - 'As well as' is another linking or connecting phrase to add information. This phrase can be used in the beginning of a sentence or in the middle of a sentence.
Example - We are interested in costs as well as quality.
Too - The word 'too' is another common word in English used as a linking word which goes either at the end of the sentence, or after the subject and means as well.
Example - I too was concerned about the projection delay.
Moreover/Furthermore - Moreover and furthermore add extra information to the point you are making. If you have already made a statement and want to put more emphasis these are the two words used as linking words.
Example - Marketing plans give us an idea moreover they tell us about the market segmentation.
Use these connecting or linking words in order to add more extra information to what you say and speak fluently and confidently.
