Week 9 – Comm 11007 – Active and Passive Writing

a. Complete test – http://www.businesswriting.com/tests/activepassive.htm

b. After completing the test on changing to active writing, I have a new found respect for those learning English.  I manage to get most of them correct, and was able to work out where I went wrong when presented with the answer.  However I feel there is so many ways to write with the same meaning, depending on whether you are narrative in tone, or if you are writing for the news.

  1. I completely agree with you about your new found respect! I also agree that there are many ways to write the same things, it is definitely an eye opener doing these tests!
