Can 'aussi que' be used to mean "(included) as well as"?

An example from lesson on comparative adverbs: Je chante aussi bien que ma tante. I sing as well as my aunt. Here, aussi que means as well as. In English, we can also say 'there are sandwiches as well as a cake', in which 'as well as' implies 'included as well as'. Cheryl

Bonjour Cheryl ! In this example, it's actually the whole group "aussi bien que" which means "as well as". "Aussi que" as an expression doesn't mean anything, unless you get these words separately in a sentence (also that), as such: "Je sais aussi que tu es venu." (I also know that you came.) I hope that's helpful !
