    Present Perfect

    What it means:" She went to London for five times?"
    Does it always implies that she no longer exists? or She is still alive.

    Re: Present Perfect

    It implies nothing about her life or existence. We'd need more context for that. By the way, 'went' is past tense, not present perfect.

    Please study my amendments to your post.

    ***

    For the second time, please note that a better title would have been She went to London.

    Re: Present Perfect

    What is the difference between: " She went to London for five times or She has gone to London for five times?"
    Does first one imply that she is not alive?

    Both sentences are ungrammatical.

    I deleted 'for' in my reply.

    (I'm just trying to point out that Rover's comments are in the OP's post.)

    I think it is correct to say 'She has been to London five times', but I am not a teacher.

    Did you edit the OP's post#4 above? It reads 'Last edited by Rover_KE; Today at 00:54.' at the bottom.
