    To or In

    Hi. I am newcomer and I am an apprentice in English so I have some questions.

    When I want to say about places where I was, I usually say "to". But I have heard somewhere that I also can say "in", like that:

    I have never been in Spain.

    Is it right?

    And one more thing before you goes. I learn English not too long so I would like you to show me mistakes in my sentences.

    Thanks In Advance.

    Re: To or In

    Hi. I am newcomer and a novice/beginner in English so I have some questions. (the slash between two words means that either word would be suitable to use to describe what you mean.)

    When I want to talk about places where I have been, I usually say "to". But I have heard somewhere that I can also say "in".

    We use the prepositions 'to' and 'in' in different ways:
    I have been to Spain many times.
    'to' because I travel from my country to another country, to Spain.
    I have never been in Spain when the running of the bulls was taking place.
    I am not travelling to Spain, I am 'in' the country, just as right now, I live in England and you live in Russia.

    And one more thing before you go.
    You would say this at the end of a conversation when the person was physically present, or on the phone. In a forum like this, where you post and later, someone replies, you would say: "And one more thiing if I may."

    I haven't been learning English for very long so I would like you to show me/point out any mistakes in my sentences.
