Passive Voice


Passive is a phrasing that looks at an action from the perspective of the object, not the subject. Many languages have it and while it can be a bit stiff at times, it’s handy if you can’t or don’t want to specify who does something. German has two types of Passive – the Zustandspassiv and the Vorgangspassiv.

The latter is what we need “werden” for.
