    Past and Past Perfect tenses

    I understand Past and Past Perfect tenses are both situation happening in the past.
    And Past Perfect tense is the situation happening earlier than those in Past tenses. Am I right?

    Thank you.

    Yes, that is a major use of the past perfect.

    It is unnecessary to capitalise the names of the tenses, Ju.
