La Voz Pasiva

La voz pasiva se usa todo el tiempo en inglés, por lo que vale la pena tomarse un tiempo para comprender su forma y uso.
Veamos el ejemplo a continuación:
• Me comí dos rebanadas de tostadas
Esto se conoce como una frase activa donde el sujeto va primero (la persona o cosa que hace la acción), seguido del verbo, y finalmente el objeto (la persona o cosa a la que le sucede la acción). Entonces, en esta frase, el sujeto es ‘yo’, el verbo es comido y el objeto son dos rebanadas de tostadas

The Passive Voice

The Passive Voice is used all the time in English, so it is worth taking time out to understand its form and use.

Let’s look at the example below:

I ate two slices of toast
This is known as an active sentence where the subject goes first (the person or thing that does the action), followed by the verb, and finally the object (the person or thing that the action happens to). So, in this sentence, the subject is ‘I’, the verb is ate and the object is two slices of toast.

If you have managed to command a language to the extent that you can make yourself understood by a native, you have done well. But notice the word ´well´. Why didn´t I use very well or proficiently? Because making yourself understood doesn´t mean that you speak the language grammatically correct or use the most up to date vocabulary
