There are three types of sentences:

Simple: A simple sentence is an independent clause that contains a subject and a verb and it expresses a complete thought.

Jose and Bob play soccer every morning.

Compound: A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so etc.

Jose plays soccer, but his big brother Tony plays baseball.

Complex: A complex sentence has one independent clause, which associates with one or more dependent clauses. Subordinators such as because, since, after, although, or when and relative pronouns such as that, who, or which are always used in complex sentences.
