    I have never heard of a place called "frnce". Please post again using full words in all sentences.

    Sentence 1 is incorrect.

    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.

    Re: HELP

    "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.
