    • Passive Voice Carmen Torres
      • When the agent is unknown
        • Spanish "SE" :
      • Se venden pisos: Flats are sold
        • Spanish "Ellos/as" omitted :
          • Le dieron un beso a Pepita: Pepita was given a kiss
      When do we use it?
      • To make the object of the active verb more important
      • America was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus
      • When the description of the agent is very long
        • A charity record has been made by many famous names in the world of pop music.
      When do we use it?
      • Subject : Person or object that suffered/enjoyed the results of an action.
      • The verb " to be " in the tense the action ocurred .
      • The Past Participle of the verb that represents the action itself.
      • Whatever complements that verb needs.
      • In a few special cases we can also use by + the agent .
      Structure of the sentence
    • Structure of the verb TENSES EXAMPLES Present Simple Pigs are often used to find truffles Present Continuous My house is being redecorated at the moment Present Perfect I have never been given flowers on my birthday Past Simple This picture was painted by Picasso Past Continuous When I saw him he was being followed by the police Past Perfect She was angry because she had already been told three times Future Simple When you get there everything will be finished Going to - Future They are not going to be easily convinced Conditional Simple You would be punished if they found out Conditional Perfect If you hadn’t told them would I have been invited ?
    • to BE gives us the tense of the action the principal verb is always in Past Participle THE PASSIVE VERB to BE (in the active tense) + Past Participle (main verb) ACTIVE PASSIVE She wants an ice-cream An ice-cream is wanted He sent a letter A letter was sent We will buy a new car next week A new car will be bought They have been cutting the grass The grass has been being cut
