    Tense

    Dear teachers!

    A: Has he been to Paris?
    B: Yes, he has.
    A: Why didn't you go with him?
    B: He went there for business reasons.

    Is there any incorrect part grammatically in the conversation?

    regards.

    Thank you.
    Does "Has he been to paris?" mean that "Did he go to paris and come back?" ?
    please give me any opinion.

    How about "Has he gone to Paris?"?
    What 's the difference between them?

    Re: Tense

    when you say: has he been to Paris? it means that he went there and came back whereas : has he gone to Paris? implies that he went to Paris and is still there.
