* AS WELL AS is similar to AND but AS WELL AS is usually used when the second subject [or noun] is not as equally as important as the first subject.
Example: The manager as well as his employees is worried about the new price increase. [This means the manager is the focus and the phrase “the employees” is just additional information. This is why the verb is still IS not ARE.]
