Transcript of Active and Passive Voice

Lesson
Active and passive voice is simply the way you say or write certain sentences. Active voice is when the subject or the person doing the action is in the front of the sentence. Passive voice is the opposite of active voice. It is when the subject of the sentence receives the action. Passive voice usually has the word by in the sentence as the something (an apple) is have something done to it by the subject. Active voice is when the subject (Bill) is doing something to the apple.
Active Voice
- when the subject of the sentence is performing the action or verb

Demarcus met with a Chinese monk
.
He met with him for mental strengthening, and to learn the no bones dance
. Before training, Demarcus was a complete train wreck. He was raised on Grove Street, Los Angeles, the meanest most dirtiest cul-de-sac on the west coast, home to the worlds best no bones dancers. There were many gangs, but none as dirty as the Ballas... literally they have never showered. One goal was made by Demarcus. He would beat the Ballas leader... Big Smoke. If anyone could do the no bones dance, it was him.
The Monk, Master Dewusonson, knows all dances known to man, from the sick cat to the wooby-dooby
. Through years of training Demarcus resembles Danielson from Karate Kid but to most bystanders he looked like a freak. And on the day of the battle, the first move Demarcus made, every bone in his body was broken by himse

Active is Stronger

Weak verbs are a part of passive, boring sentences. Active voices give the sentence life and good flow.
Active gets the point across.
