    Irregular verbs - went and been

    Hi there, :D

    Can you help me to understand something

    - He's been to India (Is this present perfect tense or past participle?)

    - He went to India (Is this simple past tense?)

    Thank you.

    The first is the present perfect. It uses has + past participle (been).
    The second is the simple past.
