371. He has donated to museums hundreds of his paintings as well as his entire personal collection of modern art.
as well as在此处意为“也，同样”，在语义上强调的是在它前面提到的比较对象。如：
The tournament is open to amateurs as well as professionals.
as well as也可以表示“与...一样好”。如：
He can speak Spanish as well as English.
与as well as类似的短语还有as well和not only...but also。
He is a worker，and a poet as well.
not only...but also与as well as含义相同，但二者的语义重点刚好相反。其中，not only...but also强调后者，而as well as则强调前者，后者只是顺便提及。如：
1)She not only plays well, but also writes music.
2)The child is not only healthy but also lively. (= The child is lively as well as healthy.)
