Active and Passive Voice – For Writing and Speaking



Active to passive conversions (or vice versa) are more than a grammar exercise that we do in school. While we are never taught the purpose of these conversions, knowing how to convert a sentence from active to passive and the other way is a essential base for being able to score well on the ‘Grammatical Range’ parameter of tests like PTE, IELTS, OET, and TOEFL.

Grammatical range looks at the variety of sentences you can construct (accurately too) to convey precise meanings and opinions. This is helpful not just in the writing section, but also in the speaking section. For those who are taking the IELTS or PTE for immigration, getting a score of 7 in IELTS or a 70 in PTE becomes vital.

Understanding how to respond appropriately to questions in the speaking section, and doing so without being repetitive is a skill that needs constant polish. This exercise will help you understand where you are, at least in one particular aspect.
