Please provide some sample sentences for us.
Student or Learner
please can you tell me the difference between "been to" and "been in"?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I am not a teacher.
In absolute terms there is very little difference between them as they both mean that you have been there.
In practice, 1) is the natural way of expressing the idea that you have spent time in Paris and that you travelled there from somewhere else.
If 2) is intended as a complete sentence, it sounds unnatural. It works fine as a fragment. 'I've been in Paris for a week.'
