ACTIVE AND PASSIVE VOICE.

  • Let us learn some tenses. but be not tensed.It is very easy.
  • Simple present tense. I play football. ( active)
  • Know here play is a transitive verb. It has an object .football.
  • In passive voice the object becomes the subject.
  • The football is played by me.
  • Present continuous: I am playing football.(active)
  • The football is being played by me.(passive)
  • Present Perfect: I have played football.(active)
  • The football has been played by me.(passive)
  • present perfect continuous: I have been playing football.( active)
  • You cannot make this into passive voice.
  • Simple past tense: I played football.( Active)
  • The football was played by me.(Passive)
  • past continuous: I was playing football.(active)
  • The foot ball was being played by me.(passive)
  • Past perfect: I had played football.(active)

  • This cannot be changed to passive voice.
  • Simple future: I will play football.(active)
