Anche is a very common word in Italian and can be used in various contexts. It is often used to add more information to a sentence, similar to the English word 'also'. For example, 'Mi piace la pizza, anche il gelato' means 'I like pizza, also ice cream.'
Anche can also be used to indicate agreement with a previous statement. For example, if someone says 'Mi piace il calcio' (I like soccer), you could respond with 'Anche io!' (Me too!).
In some cases, anche can be used to express surprise or disbelief. For example, if someone tells you they are going on vacation for three months, you might respond with 'Anche?' (Really?).
