Video Transcript

Hello. Welcome to TopUp Learning and welcome to your one minute lesson.  Today we are looking at the difference between “been” and “gone”.

Both are past participles, “been” is the past participle of the verb be, and “gone” is the past participle of the verb go.

Both are used with the present perfect, “She has been…”, “She has gone …”.  Let’s have a look in a sentence.   “She’s been to the park”.  Is she still in the park?  No.  Has she returned from the park?  Yes.  Let’s look at the difference.  “She’s gone to the park”.  So is she still in the park?  Yes.  Has she returned from the park? No.
