Hi, i've got a doubt about which tense to use when talking about the past.
I'm from brazil and here we use the "passé simple" 90% of the time. but i noticed in many texts and lyrics in french there was only the "passé composé". so people in france tends to use more the "passé composé" than the "passé simple", or else?

Merci Very Happy

oh, and just a little help please.
is the sound of "en" and "an" the same? like: en, sans, entrer, vacance ....

Merci, merci beaucoup!

in french, ppl mostly use the passé composé when they talk. the passé simple is used in written french, even though freakos like french teachers and politicians use it when they talk.

en and an are pronounced the exact same way.
