In Latin it is where we can find the etymological origin of the simple past term:
-Pasado derives from the Latin verb "passare" which, in turn, emanates from "passus", which means "put one foot forward".
-Simple, on the other hand, emanates from "simple."

The verb tenses they constitute different ways of combining the verbal aspect and the grammar time in a expression . According to the tense used, a sentence It has a certain temporal reference that indicates when the action of the verb developed.

He simple past it is one of these tenses, present in different tongues . The mention of past it refers to actions that have been carried out previously (that is, that have already been completed).

In Spanish, the simple past is also known as simple past or past indefinite . His grammar time is absolute (It is estimated from the speaker and regarding weather in which the expression is specified) and its verbal aspect is qualified as perfective .

The simple past in our language , therefore, it indicates an action that has already been developed and that does not have a necessary link with what is done in the present. The past in question, therefore, is undefined and unrelated to the present.

The expression "Juan shouted when he saw his father" includes the verb shout conjugate in past simple. The shout of Juan it developed at a time already lived, and does not necessarily have a link with the I presented .

The studies carried out on the use of the past simple in the countries where Spanish is spoken come to make clear several questions, at least, interesting:
-In Spain, for example, with respect to previous times, the use made in this verbal way has decreased.
-In Latin American countries, however, the use of this verbal time has increased. Specifically, where this is most used is in nations such as Mexico or Chile, for example.

Other examples of simple past tense verbs: “Last night I ordered garlic prawns”, "I already declared everything I know, officer", “One day I sang before five thousand people”.

Within the scope of literature this verbal form is found very frequently. Why? Because it is the one used by the author in question to carry out what is the presentation of specific and specific facts that allow the story to be told to progress.

In the English language, the simple past is known as simple past or past simple . It is used to refer to a fact that occurred in the past and, usually, is accompanied by a temporary expression that alludes to the past: “Yesterday I bought four books” (“Yesterday I bought four books”).

In the case of English we can say that it is necessary to take into account other important aspects regarding the formation and use of the simple past. Thus, in particular, the following is established:
-As a rule, it is formed by adding what is the ending "-ed" to the verb. Example: want - wanted.
-In this verbal form, there are as many regular as irregular verbs.
-In English the period of time that appears in the sentence is not as important as in Spanish.
