I'm a photographer. And my dream has always been to travel to different countries and photograph weddings. After all, it is very interesting to observe how in other countries a wedding is celebrated, what traditions they observe. But this always requires additional costs, so the melbourne cup club helps me so that there is always money in my wallet.

Discuss the difference between active voice and passive voice.

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

(20pts)
Ammorette's answers

Active voice is action. It's more expressive. Words like "I am" are used. In active voice the speaker performs the action.

In passive voice, broad general statements are used. The speaker is perceived to be speaking at the group. They are not performing the action.

Active- "Kevin hit the ball"

Passive "The ball was thrown by a boy"

 

In business, active voice is preferred. It is a more direct and engaging way of speaking.

(20pts)
Ammorette's answers

I have truly learned a great deal from this course. In my current position, I speak and email messages every minute of the day. I learned terms that put meaning to little nuggets of information that I have learned along the way. I have challenged myself to change up my vocabulary and try new phrases. Watching my tone and inflection has been something that I've been more mindful of when addressing my team. The 90 second elevator pitch assignment was my favorite. That one video showed me so much about myself. I'm changing it up and using that paragraph of networking events that I attend. I use "um" and "like more than I should. Now I am more mindful of that than I was before. Reading others posts taught me different outlooks on things that I had otherwise never given a thought. I can truly say that I am a better communicator because of this class
