Hello friends,
I have a question that is very basic, but I can't solve it by myself. That's it:I have been to London a weekend. I know you can use the present perfect with indefinite time, but in the example above I'm not sure if a weekend matches the rule. Of course I can use once, many times, etc, but what about a weekend, a year, a month and so on?
Thanks in advance

    Hola azdi.

    ¿Podrías darnos la frase española por favor? Lo que has escrito no es enteramente correcto pero puede ser dos cosas:

    1) I have been in London for a weekend/one weekend (Hace un fin de semana que estoy en Londres)

    O

    2) I have been to London for a weekend (He estado en Londres una vez y me quedé allí durante un fin de semana).

    Saludos :)

    Hi flyingcabbage,
    It is a narrativa essay, It starts with that sentence: i have been to London a weekend. I went with some friends ...
    so is It alright?

    No está bien.

    Sería o "I have been in London (for a week)" o " I went to London for a weekend" o "I have been to London" o "I have been to London on a weekend". No puedes decir lo que planeaste.

    Pero ¿qué es lo que quieres decir en español? Como hemos demostrado, hay dos or tres frases que puedan corresponder pero todas tienen sentidos un poco diferentes.

    Lo más probable es "I went to London for a weekend" o "I have been to London once..." o algo así.
