The past simple tense (sometimes called preterite, simple past or past indefinite) is the basic form of the past tense. This is one of the most common past tenses and can describe a lot of events. It is really important to know how and when to use this tense for daily conversation.

The term „simple“ is used because it distinguishes syntactic sentences from the auxiliary of the past perfect or past progressive tense. The past simple is one of the easiest tenses to learn, which is one reason why this tense is called the past simple tense.
