1. She works in the film industry as well as writing for magazines. (When we put a verb after as well as, we most often use the -ing form.)

2. She dances as well as she sings. (= Her singing is as good as her dancing.)

3. I have to cook the meals as well as clean the house. (When the main clause contains a to-infinitive, an infinitive without to is possible after as well as.)

4. As well as baking a cake, she made some delicious ice cream.

5. He sings as well as acting. (When we put a verb after as well as, we most often use the -ing form.)

6. John, as well as I, was delighted to find your letter in our mailbox. (When we connect two singular subjects with as well as, the verb is usually singular if the first verb is singular.)
