Independent Learning Log

What I did : I looked up on Active voice and Passive voice

What I learnt : 

Active voice is like our 'normal' voice or the way we speak. Passive voice is like a third-person voice or the 'less usual' voice.  In the active voice, the 'object' of the sentence will receive the action of the verb. However, in passive voice, it is switched over. The 'object' of the active voice will become the 'subject' of the passive voice. In the passive voice, the subject receives the action of the verb.

For example :

Active Voice : Tom(subject) painted(verb) the entire house(object).
Passive Voice : The entire house(subject) was painted(verb) by Tom(object).
