    When to use them ?

    I have been to Sydney.

    I went to Sydney.

    How and when to use these sentences ?

    Do they mean the same or different ?

    "I have been to Sydney" this means that at some time in your life you have visited Sydney.
    "I went to Sydney" doesn't work as a stand-alone sentence. You could say, "I went to Sydney last year", for example.

    Thank you. It's very helpful for me.

    I will use them correctly after I have this good understanding.
