Hi Peter M

could you explain what does Stephen's mean when he said "I’ve been loads of times"?

Thank you

Hello Byxinh,

'I've been' means 'I've traveled to' and 'loads of times' means 'many times'. You can find a definition and example of 'loads of' in the dictionary – just look it up in the search box on the right side of this page.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
