    Re: correct tense

    [1] Did you go to abroad last month?

    The tense is OK, but there's no need to add "to". The word "abroad" already has a directional prepositional housed within. It's "a-".

    Correction:
    Did you go abroad last month?

    [2]Yes. It was the second time I went to Japan (with Jim).

    Note, "with Jim" is additional information, so it should be added as such, like this,

    Correction:
    Yes(, I did). It was my second visit, with my friend Jim.

    Note, words in brackets (. . . ) are optional.

    All the best.
