This is the presentation I created for my A2 class, it covers the structure of the Passive Voice in the Present and Past Simple tense, it also includes a clear explanation of the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs, as well as the difference between BY and WITH. There are also exercises to practice each of the covered aspects.

The presentation starts with a clear explanation of the difference between the Passive and Active Voice and the transformations that take place when an active sentence is turned into a passive one.
