  1. 1. By: Gabriela Londoño y Natalia López 6C
  2. 2. • The active voice is the "normal" voice. This is the voice that we use most of the time. In the active voice, the object receives the action of the verb: Active Subject Verb Object > Cats Eat Fish
  3. 3. • The passive voice is less usual. In the passive voice, the subject receives the action of the verb: Passive Subject Verb Object < Fish Are eaten By cats
  4. 4. • The structure of the passive voice is very simple: subject + auxiliary verb ( to be) + main verb (past participle) The main verb is always in its past participle form.
  5. 5. subject auxiliary verb (to be) main verb (past participle) Water is drunk by everyone. 100 people are employed by this company. I am paid in euro. We are not paid in dollars. Are they paid in yen?
  6. 6. • We can form the passive in any tense. In fact, conjugation of verbs in the passive tense is easy, as the main verb is always in past participle form and the auxiliary verb is always be. So, for example: *present simple: It is made *present continuous: It is being made *present perfect: It has been made
  7. 7. • The object of the active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb: Subject Verb Object Active Everybody Drinks Water Passive Water Is drunk By everybody
