Handout Objective

An article about the history of Valentine’s Day offers a challenging reading and comprehension task. Students review how to form and when to use the passive voice as well as how it differs from the active voice.

  1. We use the passive voice when we want to express what is done to someone or something. The subject of the sentence does nothing. Rather, something is done to it.
  2. We use the passive voice when who or what causes the action is unknown, unimportant, obvious, or ‘people in general’. The person or people performing an action are referred to as the agent. It is often omitted if the agent is not important for understanding. This is especially useful in business as the focus is placed on a product.
  3. The passive voice is constructed: Passive subject + to be + past participle + the agent (if relevant).

Handout Objective

This handout has students practice using ‘if only’, used to express a strong wish that things could be different; to emphasize a regretful decision. It can be used to talk about past, present and future unreal conditions.

A regret is when you feel upset (sad or angry) about something you did or didn’t do in the past. When English speakers want to express a regret, something we wish would have been or happened differently in the past, we can use the third conditional. Commonly formed with two clauses, the IF clause and the RESULT clause. The IF clause uses the past perfect, and the result clause uses the modal verbs ‘would’, ‘could’, or ‘might’ + have + past participle.
