THE PASSIVE VOICE
The Active sentences focus on what the person (subject) does, did, or
The passive sentences focus on the object of the action:
My Granny bought vitamins for me. (Active Voice.)
Vitamins were bought for me. (Passive Voice.)
We use the Passive Voice if we don't know, don't care or don't want to
who (or what) did the action. The Passive Voice focuses on processes
We form the Passive Voice by means of the verb to be and the third form
of the main verb.
Changing from Active into Passive
• The object of the active sentence becomes the subject in the passive
The active verb changes into a passive form.
The subject of the active sentences becomes the agent.
The agent is not mentioned when:
-it is unknown;
-it is unimportant;
-it is obvious from the context.
