How to make the Passive Voice?

timidiomas No Comments

Using the Passive Voice in English might seem difficult but it’s actually quite simple and straightforward. We are going to explain how to do it so you’ll never forget it again!

In an active sentence the subject who does the action is the most important thing in the sentence. However, in a passive sentence the focus moves to the person or thing that is the object of the action.

We often use the passive voice when we don’t know or don’t want to mention who is doing the action. It’s also common in formal texts which use more elaborate language.

So, how do we transform an active sentence into a passive one?

  1. The object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence.
  2. Instead of the main verb, we need to use the verb “to be” in the correct tense and the past participle of the main verb.
  3. The subject of the sentence becomes a complement and usually comes after the preposition “by”.

For example:

Active                                                             Passive

The Beatles wrote “She loves you”               “She loves you” was written by The Beatles
