    Whats the difference between "сообща" and "вместе"? My dictionary says they both mean "together", so is there a difference?
    Thanks

    вместе has broader meaning.

    СООБЩА нареч.
    1. Совместно, общими силами.

    ВМЕСТЕ нареч.
    1. Совместно, сообща.
    2. Соединяя в одно место, смешивая. // В соединении с чем-л. //
    3. В то же время, одновременно.

    Мы помогли Даробату сообща.

    Все вместе мы добились его понимания этих двух слов.

    мы сделали это вместе - мы сделали это сообща - одинаково

    мы были вместе, но мы были сообща - невозможно сказать

    т.е. вместе - is more general than сообща you can do things either вместе or сообща but you can inly be вместе.

    my bad

    sorry my prev post must have been rather confusing

    мы были вместе is ok

    мы были сообща - is weird(although it could probably be used meaning that they were in a tight spot but were actively helping each other out)

    сообща sort of has the same root as сообщаться so rougly сообща translates as in cooperation with each other, thus мы сделали это сообща means we did it in cooperation with each other. In russian this word has become an idiom - сообща and is now only used for actions as an adverb and is never used for states, only for actions done by people (closely) cooperating with each other. Obviosly together can be synonimous in this meaning so that we did it together and we did it in cooperation with each other both mean pretty much the same thing. Yet to be together with somebody is a different story, you don't have to be doing anything
