Is the question 'have you ever gone to the Taipei City Zoo' asking about the same thing as 'have you ever been to the Taipei City Zoo'?
ps. 'Taipei City Zoo' is a place in the city where I live
To me, it has a bit of a different meaning:
been to = visited
been in = entered
Collins Cobuild Usage:
go--have gone & have been
I've never gone to Italy. (AmE)
Have you ever been to France or Germany? (BrE)
Do native Americans agree with this? Thank you in advance.
If "have you ever gone to... " is not grammatically correct, the sentence "did you go to ..." or "do you go to .." would be incorrect too.
Thank you !
