Translations of "Episode"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (RU)? In one episode of Friends Phoebe said “ I haven’t been to sniper school”. Why did she use “haven’t been to”? And what is the difference between “haven’t gone” and “haven’t been to” in this context. Thanks
A: Phoebe could have said "I didn't go to sniper school" which would mean much the same thing as "...haven't been..."

"I haven't gone" means something quite different: it means you are still here or have not yet done something you were expected to do in the present. If your flatmate says "I thought you were leaving today" you might say "I am, but I haven't gone yet". Your mum says "I thought you were going to the doctor about that rash" --> "I am, but I haven't gone yet". Your sisters are talking about you rudely to each other as if you were not there; you protest "I'm still here, you know, I haven't gone yet!".
