Independant Learning Log 4

Source: http://www.learnenglishfeelgood.com/esl-passive-voice-exercise2.html

What I did: I went online to search for a practice on the active and passive voice.

What I learnt: I learnt that active voice is used in a past tense while the passive voice is used is the past perfect tense. Passive voice occurs only when the subject is acting on a verb while active voice occurs when a subject is acted on by the passive voice.
Examples of active voice:

They were interviewing John for the job position.
The teacher told Harry not to talk in class.

Examples of passive voice:

John was being interviewed for the job.
You would have been notified of your ranking if you had won in the first place.
