Salve, vorrei capire quando e come usare "too" e "also" (anche/pure) e la differenza tra i due.
Grazie

Per quanto riguarda il significato, non c'è differenza.

L'unica differenza è il posizionamento: too si usa alla fine di una frase, mentre also si usa di solito tra il soggetto e il verbo.

Per esempio:

He speaks Spanish, and he also speaks English.
He speaks Spanish, and he speaks English, too.

Good question, Antonio. Soltanto espanderò sulle eccellenti risposte già fornite. In spoken English, it’s all about stressing the correct word.


"Mi piace anche la pizza"
I like *pizza* too. / I also like *pizza*.


"Anche a me piace la pizza"
*I* like pizza too. We could also say “I too like pizza.” 

Don’t try to translate. In a real conversation, either the context will clarify it, or you’ll simply employ an appropriate phrase or phrase that gets the idea across economically and idiomatically:

A: I like pizza.
B: So do I. I do too. (Informal: Me too.)

A: I like spaghetti, and pizza too / and also pizza.

Note: The grammar in "I do too", and especially in "so do I" is basic and fundamental to the English language. Learners need to master it to the point where it is as natural as breathing.

La parola ' too' può anche essere usato come 'troppo' in italiano per accentuare o indicare l'eccesso :

'It was all too much for him' Era tutto troppo per lui
'There is too much noise' C'è troppo rumore
'These shoes are too small for me' Queste scarpe sono troppo piccole per me
'Don't add too much water' Non aggiungere troppa acqua
'It's too good to be true' È troppo bello per essere vero

Antonio,

Some examples to help you understand: "I really like pizza." The response, "Me too!" Or a more formal way of saying it "I also like pizza." they are very interchangeable, however i think also is slightly more formal.
