"I've been to frnce between the dates bla bla and bla bla "
"I was in frnce between the dates bla bla and bla bla "
Wat is the difference between them? plz

Sentence 1 is incorrect.Originally Posted by unregister;634052I
Sentence 2 is nearly correct, but you don't need the words "the dates".
I was in France between July 12th and July 20th.
I was in France between April and September.
Or you can say:
I was in France from July 12 until July 20th.
You need to use full words in your sentences, and correct capitalisation and punctuation. I have made relevant amendments to your original post, marked in red.
"I've been to France" cannot be used with a specific time reference. It refers to general experience.
"I was in France" refers to a specific time or event and therefore is correctly used with dates.
Thank you both.
