What I did:

In accordance to Mr’s Jung’s instructions, I read up on active and passive voice in the use of the English Language. This read-up on active and passive voice was an eye-opener and I learnt the different features or types of language use.

What I have learnt:

I have learnt that, when using the English Language, there are there are two special forms for verbs called voices. First, there is the Active Voice. Then,there is the Passive Voice. These voices are simply how the verbs in a sentence are and can be used.

Active Voice:

The active voice can be known as the "normal" voice that we use most of the time. In the active voice, the object receives the action of the verb which the subject gives. Example: Cats (subject) eat (verb) fish (object). 

Passive Voice:

The passive voice is used less commonly in speech. Unlike the active voice, the subject receives the action of the verb in the passive voice. Example: Fish (Subject) are eaten (verb) by cats (object). The Passive voice is used very commonly in reports or in other appliances of third person speech. 

Comparison:

Active Voice: The two kings are signing the treaty. 

Passive Voice: The treaty is being signed by the two kings.
