Dear teachers,

I have the following doubt:

"I also don´t have time" or
"I don´t have time as well" ?

Thank you in advance

Use:
I don't have time neither.
Hi! Pamela. Always use also and as well with positive sentences.
And in your example sentences I would rather say it like this- I don't have time either.
Use either with negative sentences.
Thanks!

Dear Silak,

thank you very much, it is very clear! What about "neither" as suggested?

Best regards
Pamela
Pamela81What about "neither" as suggested?
We already have a "not" after "do",therefore we don't need another in the form of Neither
neither=not either.
If we say "we don't have time neither" (It someway very oddly gives the meaning that I also have time)
Thanks!
Hi,
Consider this simple conversation:

Jane: Oh, I don't have time.
Sam: Neither do I [= I don't have time as well].

Sam's response sounds more natural to me than the bracketed expression. In addition, if your first
utterance is not intended to be a casual response as in the case above, you can say it if it helps you to complete
a prior idea.

Consider this case:

I can't do my homework all by myself. I also don't have time, actually. What should I do?

Dear all,

thank you for your replies although now I am a bit confused. I was told that "also" cannot be used in negative sentences but Regards, you made an example showing negative form and "also" " I also don´t have time" can you please clarify?

Thank you so much

Pamela
