www.sekolahbahasainggris.com – Rekan SBI, tahukah kita bahwa kalimat dalam bahasa inggris dapat berupa kalimat aktif atau kalimat pasif. Oleh karena itu, tenses bahasa inggris juga memiliki “bentuk aktif” dan “bentuk pasif.” Kita harus belajar membedakan antara kalimat aktif dan kalimat pasif untuk berhasil berbahasa Inggris dengan baik dan benar.
Dalam kalimat aktif, Sesuatu yang melakukan tindakan adalah subjek kalimat dan sesuatu yang menerima tindakan adalah objek. Kebanyakan kalimat dalam bahasa inggris merupakan kalimat aktif.
[Subject/Sesuatu yang melakukan tindakan] + [Verb/kata kerja] + [Object/Sesuatu yang menerima tindakan]
- The teacher(Subject) teachs(Verb) the students(Object)
Dalam kalimat pasif, sesuatu yang menerima tindakan adalah subjek kalimat dan sesuatu yang melakukan tindakan(bersifat opsional, dapat ditulis atau tidak) ditulis dekat dengan akhir kalimat. Kita dapat menggunakan bentuk pasif jika kita berpikir bahwa sesuatu yang menerima tindakan merukanan hal yang lebih penting atau harus ditekankan kepada pendengar. kita juga dapat menggunakan bentuk pasif jika kita tidak tahu siapa yang melakukan tindakan atau jika kita tidak ingin menyebutkan siapa yang melakukan tindakan.
[Sesuatu yang menerima tindakan] + [be] + [past participle(verb 3) dari kata kerja] + [by] + [sesuatu yang melakukan tindakan]
- The students(Subject) are(be) taught(verb3) by the teacher.
