Peking and 'last year' should count as well.

Chinese and English each have distinct and equivalent ways to express "last year" vs "one year ago".

The point of this translation is that it shows the different emphasis in chinese. So 去年她去北京。is just stating that she went there last year, but 她是一前去北京的。emphasizes that it was last year that she went.
