I'm wondering if passe simple is used in other forms of written French--letter writing, diary writing, newspaper articles, magazine articles, etc., or is it really only used for published literature?
Hi Lorie,I've seen it in magazine articles, on historic statues around Paris and other major cities, in museums on art exhibit placards/labels, etc. It's a fundamental part of knowing French.
