Welcome to this English #vocabulary post which explains the difference between ‘been (to)’ and ‘gone (to)’. Many Italian learners of English confuse the use of these two verb forms. Carefully study the following sentences:
Peter is on holiday. He has gone to France. (= he is there now OR on his way there)
Sabrina is back home now. She has been to Scotland. (= she has now returned)
The above image provides a very helpful visual way to remember the important difference between BEEN and GONE! Now you can enjoy using ‘been’ and ‘gone’ correctly!
