The Past Simple in Spanish
The past simple in Spanish is the most common past tense used in our language. In Spanish it is known as the pretérito simple or indefinido, or simply, pretérito.
According to its name, we can say that this verb tense expresses an action in the past (preterite) and is formed with only one word (simple). In this way, it is opposed to the imperfect preterite (unfinished action) and the past perfect (it needs an auxiliary verb).
