Is it possible to say “I have been there in May.” Or do I have to say “I went there in May.” if I want to say Date?

I’ll appreciate it if you teach me. Thank you.

You can say, “I went there in May.”

You’re onto something about providing the date. If you don’t provide a specific timeframe, you can simply say, “I have been there before.” But that sounds a little awkward when you provide the time, unless you punctuate it differently. So, you could write:

I have been there – in May.

which is like a shortened form of:

I have been there [before]. [I went] in May.
