How can I make the difference between the 'passé simple' and the 'imparfait'

The 'passé simple' is a tense for a past, finished action whereas, the 'imparfait' is used to describe an action in the past, longer and maybe unfinished.

Passé simple is a precise moment whereas Imparfait is over a larger period and slower.
