    Default left vs had left and the use of "when"

    Hi
    1)Sara left when Josť arrived.
    2)Sara had left when Josť arrived.
    They don't have the same meaning. That is:
    1)It indecates thet sara left quite at the same time when Josť arrived.
    2)It tells that Sara was the first to leave and after that Josť arrived.
    Is that right!!!
    Thanks a lot.
