Do you have a problem with Passive Voice? You don’t know the differences between Passive and Active voice?
Well, you don’t have to worry any longer now because I have created this article just for you.
If you scroll down below you will see that I have taken one sentence and analyzed it in both active and passive voices for you.
Now remember that in the active voice your sentences are usually constructed using this formula:
Subject + verb + object + time expression
For example: I clean my room every day. --> I (subject) + clean (verb) + my room (object) + everyday (time expression).
However, in the passive voice your object becomes subject and the sentence above looks like this:
My room is cleaned every day. --> My room (subject) + is (verb to be) + cleaned (verb) + every day (time expression).
Now let’s see how other tenses in English work. :)
1. Present Simple Active Voice
I clean my room every day.
My room is cleaned every day.
I cleaned my room yesterday.
My room was cleaned yesterday.
I have cleaned my room this morning.
My room has been cleaned this morning
I am cleaning my room now.
My room is being cleaned now
I was cleaning my room yesterday.
My room was being cleaned yesterday.
I will clean my room tomorrow.
My room will be cleaned tomorrow.
I am going to clean my room this weekend.
My room is going to be cleaned this weekend.
