Глагол: пассивный залог

Активный залог употребляется, когда подлежащее само производит действие:

Он написал это письмо вчера. (Past Simple — активный залог).

He wrote this letter yesterday.

Пассивный залог употребляется, когда действие производится над подлежащим. Обычно нам неизвестно или неважно, кто произвел действие. Главное — результат действия. Время глагола в пассивном залоге определяется также, как и в активном залоге:

Это письмо было написано вчера. (Past Simple — Пассивный залог).

This letter was written yesterday.

Пассивный залог образуется по формуле: to be + V3

to be (глагол-помощник) ставится в нужное время по формулам активного залога;

V (смысловой глагол) всегда стоит в третьей форме.
