The Passive Voice
I would say that being able to write passive sentences is an absolute must for any IELTS test-taker. Not only are they a key component of the writing exam, but they are often play a large role in the reading and listening exams too. Therefore, in this video, we will do a comprehensive review of the passive voice, including:
- a quick review of the difference between passive and active sentences
- why and when we should use the passive voice
- how to form the passive voice in ALL tenses
- the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs (well, I won't teach you this, the Grammar Geek will)
If you are a high-level learner (C1+) and don't have much time before test day, you might choose to skip this lesson.
