Discuss the difference between active voice and passive voice.

Which of these is the preferred style by business communication resources?

(20pts)
Debra's answers

Active voice is the sentence structure in which the subject carries out the action.  Active sentences tend to be shorter, more precise, and easier to understand.  Example:  All sales orders are processed daily by Mackenzie.  Active voice is the clear choice for a variety of contexts, but not all.  Overall, business communication resources tend to recommend active voice as the preferred style.

Passive voice is a sentence structure in which the subject receives the action.  Passive sentences can be written in ways that do not tell the reader who the doer of the action is. Example:  All sales orders was processed daily. This is a complete and correct sentence in passive voice.

 

Word count: 111 words
Personalized Feedback:

The example you gave for passive voice has an incorrect verb. You should use "were" instead of "was"

Share what you have learned from this course and how it has helped you both personally and

professionally in the area of communication.  (150 WORDS MINIMUM)

(20pts)
Debra's answers

I can truly said that I have learned so much from this course. I was able to review a lot the basic English language requirements and correct grammar usage. I also appreciated the information given, which I did not know a lot about, on conducting interviews and media responses. Even n though I am not a very experienced public speaker, I do feel that now if I have to give a speech I can be much better job after taking this course.

If I had to select the most interesting thing I learned from this course it would be the “90 Second Elevator Pitch.”   I have to admit that I did not even know that I had a webcam on my computer. I guess because I never had to use it until I did the video.   Although I was very nervous, and I am sure it showed, I enjoyed learning how to do the video.   Composing what to say in the video was interesting also. Trying to put a lot of information in such a short presentation was interesting. I admit I recorded myself about fifteen or more times.

This course has been great and very informative. I really enjoyed it, and the instructor, and I learned a lot of helpful information.
