Helen Zhang (Chinese Teacher) says
The Mandarin Chinese word “也 yě”  translates into “also/too.” It is usually put before the predicate to indicate that the subject will do something./ or have a certain kind of feature, too.
For example:
Nǐ dǎsuàn qù páshān, wǒ yě xiǎng qù.
你打算去爬山,我也想去。
You are planning to go hiking. I also want to go. 
Bālí hěn měi, Lúndūn yě hěn měi.
巴黎很美,伦敦也很美。
Pairs is very beautiful. London is beautiful, too.
