    ever, before

    Hello guys...

    "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.

    Re: ever, before

    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!
