What's the difference between Active and Passive Voice, and why do we need the distinction?
Leaving aside the grammar, I think passive voice is more formal, and active is... well, less formal.
But in grammar in active voice the subject make the action, meanwhile in the passive voice; is the same but the order is changes an you add the auxiliary "by"
Active voice is to focus in the action and passive is when the subject receive the action.
Passive voice is used when we need to focus on the action, the action it´s the most important part of the sentence and we´re not giving a lot of importance to the who realized the action. Active voice is different, with active voice the most important part of the sentence it´s who realizes the action.
on pasive voice the subject is no longer active and instead is been acted upon by the verve. insted on active voice the subject preforms the verve directly. this diference are needed because they give different strenghts to the text.
In passive voice the subject is the receiver of the action and in active voice the subject is the one that does the action :)
In Active voice the subject is doing the action and in passive voice the subject is receiving the action :)
