Question:

What's the difference between the past simple and the past perfect?

Melissa G.
Answer:

These two tenses are both used to talk about things that happened in the past. However we use past perfect to talk about something that happened before another action in the past, which is usually expressed by the past simple. For example: "I had already eaten my dinner when he called."
