"Have you ever been in Brazil before?"
Can I use "ever" and "before" at the same time in the above sentence?
I would appreciate if someone could give me some tips about the usage of "ever" and "before".
Thanks in advance.
In England we would certainly use 'to' before Brazil, rather than 'in'. We go to a place; we don't go in it. I know I'm missing the point.
Either one of those words (ever/before) is enough to achieve the meaning. To use both is a needless repetition, but we do usually use them both, as you have. So that's alright then!
