大家好!

I want to combine these sentences 我四年前去了北京。我三个月前去了上海。 and say "I went to Beijing four years ago, and Shanghai three months ago."

谷歌把 “ I went to Beijing four years ago, and Shanghai three months ago. ” 翻译成 “我四年前去了北京,上海和三个月前 ”。

Is it correct?
I think 和does mean "and" but I'm not sure if the use of 和 or the word order in 上海和三个月前.

By the way, both trips were for several days, just for sightseeing.

谢谢!

    In this case, and shouldn't be translated. I'm not 100% sure but I think when you combine two sentence with 'and', you don't have to tranlate the 'and'. Otherwise, it sounds odd.
