The Passive Voice
Notice the form of the verb be – are.
To form the passive, we use be + past participle (verb 3). You must use the correct form of the verb be for number, person and tense. Usually, when we describe a process we would use the present simple (is/are) unless it is explicitly stated to be a past or projected future process.
If we want to include the agent of the verb we can use ‘by’.
For example: The letters are taken to the sorting station by postmen.
Let's practice this grammar with a few activities.
