too和also的疑問

It's also a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing.

請問also和too都是表有(也)的意思.當然彼此放的位置不一樣.但是,如上句也可以換成It's a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing, too.嗎?總覺得這樣滿怪的,還是我多疑了呢?

Update:

是 It is also a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing. 另一句 It is a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing, too .

    [ It is also a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing.

    改成 It is a good idea to go swimming or mountain climbing, too .

    總覺得這樣滿怪的,還是我多疑了呢? ]

    不但你自己覺得怪,英美人士聽起來也會覺得怪。這是因為句子太長,too 不要這樣用。記住下面幾個原則,too 和 also 大概就沒問題:

    1. too 用在簡短的回答:

    A: "I have a book."

    B: "I have one, too."

    這裡你不能說 "I also have one."

    2. too 用在祈使句:

    餐桌上,媽媽給弟弟麵包,你也要。

    Give me some bread too, please.

    這裡不要說 "Also give me some bread, please."

    3. also 一般和動詞連用,位置在句中,too 一般在句尾:

    He not only steals; he also lies.

    He not only steals; he lies, too.

    (他不光是會偷,還會說謊。)

    4. too 在寫文章的時候,表示鄭重,可以放在句中,加在主詞後面:

    I, too, have a dream.

    (我也有夢想。)

    最後來看一個有 also 又有 too 的句子,看它如何符合上面的原則:

    We also decided to rent a slightly older car, and that, too, was a good idea.

    (我們也決定租舊一點的車,而就這個決定來說,也是個好主意。)

    also decided --------> 原則 3

    that, too,... ----------> 原則 4

    這兩個字除了位置的確沒有太大的區別。很難解釋什麼時候用那個字感覺會比另一個字來得好。所以我覺得無法去斷定通常用 too 會比好。而且﹐在這一句﹐我個人覺得其實用 also 會比 too 來得更恰當。個人感覺及經驗罷了。

    文法上位置OK但口語上用too較 also為佳。
