    tanto ciencia política como inglés

    Friends:

    I need some help with this sentence.
    Original sentence:
    "Estudiamos juntos, tanto ciencia política como inglés"

    Translation:
    "we study a lot together, as much as political science and English."

    Can anybody tell me if it is ok?

    Other suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Re: as much as

    We both: los dos
    both political science and English: sounds too formal

    That's another "correct" way that people here are unlikely to say it.

    Ya lo sé, mula mía, pero lo que quería saber Pablota era como traducir "tanto X como Y".

    She wants to translate it, or she wants to know how we would actually say it?
