    Hi, I'm Brandon and I live in Spain, my mother language is Spanish, I see that you're studying Spanish and I think that it's great. Well, I can help you with your question:

    You've written "He died" which in Spanish means "él murió"; you have written the same phrase with the word "last year", then the phrase changes the sense, now it means "él murió el año pasado" (he died the last year). You have to take into account some things such as:

    Your phrase is in "simpe past".

    You have to write with the "tílde", that is the line on the letter; the difference between "él" and "el" is that "él" means "he" (pronoun) and "el" means "the" (which determinate the noun).

    Well, I hope it had been useful for you. Greetings and excuseme because like you I'm learning English.

    He died last year is `El muri`o el a~o pasado.

    Die= Morir(verb)

    He died = El murio.

    Great grandparents is Bisabuelos( Bis means twice is like saying two times grandparents)

    Bisabuela (Great grandmother)

    Bisabuelo (Great grandfather)

    Bisabuelos (both)

    Good luck!

    Buena suerte! (means good luck)

    Source(s): Spanish is my first language.

    Morir changes to a 'u' - 'se murió el año pasado'. (Using it reflexively is a more common use).

    Great grandparents is 'bisabuelos'.

    Great great grandparents - 'tatarabuelos'.

    And then for each subsequent 'great' just add another 'tatara' to the beginning.

    To say "He died last year" is: Él murió el año pasado.

    The verb 'morir' is to die. He died=murió

    Great-grandparents= bisabuelos.

    (I am in my third year college level spanish).

    He died last year.

    El murio el año pasado. or El fallecio el año pasado.

    Great grandparents - Bisabuelos
