Past Perfect

Past perfect is a tense which is mainly used to express and action or state which happens before another past tense, in this case expressed in past simple; i.e. if you have two consecutive actions that could be or not connected and you want to mark a sequence of events, just use past simple. However, if you want to connect both past actions and want to show that one happened before the other with a consecuence on the second one, the first one should be written in past perfect.
