When using 'zij' the focus is on the person, using 'ze' the focus is on WHAT she does.

I translated "they speak" instead of "she speaks" and they marked it wrong. Why?

That would be „Ze spreekt zowel Nederlands als Engels", if I'm not mistaken.

Would "she speaks Dutch and English too" be an acceptable translation? Is there different words for "also" and "too" in Dutch?
