I have asked about my friend’s holiday story. He told me this:

I ever went to Danau Toba in North Sumatera. I went there with my family…

He continued tell the story. But he did mistake that most Indonesians do in speak English.

What is the mistake?

He used the word “ever” and past tense. He translated in Bahasa Indonesia way.

Saya pernah pergi ke Danau Toba di Sumatera Utara. Saya pergi ke sana dengan keluarga saya…
I ever went to Danau Toba in North Sumatera. I went there with my family…

Β Don’t laugh. It might be your story too… πŸ˜€

What is the correct phrase in English?

Please remind if you did something but it is already done at this time, use Present Perfect Tense (formula: have/has + Verb 3/Past Participle).

So, the correct phrase for this purpose is:

I have already been to Danau Toba in North Sumatera.
Saya sudah pernah ke Danau Toba di Sumatera Utara.

or

I’ve been to Danau Toba in North Sumatera.
Saya pernah ke Danau Toba di Sumatera Utara.
