The passive voice may not be used as much as the active voice, but knowing when and how to use the passive appropriately gives a person a higher level of accuracy in written and spoken English.
I recently met a request for an updated lesson on the passive. In the ideal world, I would have taken the time to produce bite-size lessons and published a playlist on this complex grammar topic. As it turned out, time constraints forced me to teach one intense 17-minute video lesson and hope that my organization and pacing makes the content clear and digestible. View lesson on YouTube.
Even the longer duration doesn’t allow all the practice a student needs to master the passive. If you’d like to reinforce both the form and the use, please check out my Advanced Grammar_the passive voice_handout.
