Hi teachers!


Here are a couple of questions about present perfect.


First, I have learned and taught we cannot say #1, but #2 and #3 are okay.

1. I have gone to Paris.

2. I have been to Paris.

3. She has gone to Paris.


However I just saw #4 on the web.

Is it grammatical?

4. I have gone to school once.


Then can we say #5?

5. I have gone to Paris once (or twice)


In fact when I saw #4, I was a little shocked.


Please teachers help me out.

Many thanks in advance.

First, I have learned and taught we cannot say #1, but #2 and #3 are okay.

1. I have gone to Paris .This is OK if you have a suitable context. eg an office worker going on vacation leaves a note saying this on his desk, or leaves it as a message on his phone.

2. I have been to Paris.

3. She has gone to Paris.


However I just saw #4 on the web. I wouldn't say this is incorrect grammar, but it is hard to think of a suitable context.
