Default Re: Expressing the idea of something being done once or several times during a certai

No, they are different.

Last year is 2015, in other words - I only went there once in 2015.

In the last year, means from 12 months ago until now, in other words - I have been there twice since August 2015.

Notice, that I changed the tense from past simple to present perfect in the second sentence because the time period includes the present.
