    We don't use this verb tense when you speak. Or rarely especially the 1srt, 2d, 3rd person singular.
    The 1srt, 2d, 3rd person plural is only used in the books, especially XVIII, XIX century.

    It doesn't forbidden if you use it in oral but, you will sound speak like an old book and we will laugh because it will sound funny!
    In French oral or writing to indicate the past tense, we use passé composé :
    j'ai fait
    tu as fait
    il a fait
    nous avons fait
    vous avez fait
    ils ont fait

    Bonjour M Ricardo, en français nous utilisons presque jamais le passé simple , utiliser le passé composé quand vous parlez c`est très bien et plus facile. Bonne chance . Yvette de Québec Canada,
