Passive Voice (3)

 

When using the Passive Voice, we often use get/got instead of a Be Verb.

 

 

  • My motorcycle got hit by a car.
  • The house got destroyed by the tornado.
  • Jason is getting yelled at by his teacher right now.

 

 

*Using get/got is not as formal as using Be Verbs, so we usually use get/got in spoken English and Be Verbs in written English.

 

 

 

These sentences are in the Active Voice.

Rewrite them using the Passive Voice, using get/got instead of Be Verbs.

(You might not have to write the subject in some sentences.)
