Discuss the difference between active voice and passive voice.

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

(20pts)
Hector's answers

Passive voice is a sentence structure in which the subject receives the action Active sentences tend to be shorter, more precise, and easier to understand. This is specially true because passive sentences can be written in ways that do not tell the reader who the doer of the action is, also passive voice allows the writer to avoid personal references or personal pronouns (he, she, they) to create a more objective tone and Active voice is the clear choice for a variety of contexts, but not at all. when you want to deemphasize the doer of the action you may write "Ten late arrivals were recorded this month" and not even mention who was late.

Overall, business communication resources tend to recommend Active voice as the preferred style.

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)
Hector's answers

I think this course of Business Communication was, is and will be a great course for anyone in this college that want to learn how to be better in the workplace and as a person because the content is very interesting and important. During the time that I been taking this class in this summer section I did get lot of knowledge about communication and how deep is it with all the different parts that this has. The course helped me to develop the written and verbal communication skills that I  will use throughout my career. I think Business Communication works a lot with the Leadership of the people to help them to develop self awareness and emotional intelligence as I learned the professional norms of writing and presenting individually and with a team , well to be honest it was a good experience for me and I feel so exited to have this feeling right now because I going be with more skills and more expectations in my future thanks Professor Kathy Wells .
