    Have been

    Hi guys,

    We say "I have been to that place twice", but how can we use "Have been" in this construction "If I had, I would"?

    They are different structures with different purposes.

    Re: Have been

    Yes, you could in the right context, but your question was about have been. (Paris, not paris)
