"另外" (lìngwài) versus "此外" (cǐwài):

"另外" is a more common and versatile term, and it is often used in spoken and written language. It can be used to introduce additional information, options, or choices. It is suitable for both formal and informal contexts. "此外" is slightly more formal and less commonly used in everyday conversation. It is often found in written documents, reports, or formal speeches. It is well-suited for academic or business contexts.

"另外" is an adverb and can appear between the subject and the predicate of a sentence. "此外" is a conjunction that can only appear at the beginning of a sentence or between two clauses within a sentence. For instance, you can say 我另外再给你一个吧。I will additionally give you another one, but you cannot use 此外 in this way.
