The Passive - Engleza Admitere Academia de Politie
The Passive: We form the passive with the verb to be in the appropiate tense and thepast
participle of the main verb. Only transitive verbs (verbs which take an object) can be used in
the passive (live does not have a passive form). We use the passive :
 When the person or people who do the action are unknown, unimportant or obvious from
the context. Bill ‘s car was stolen (we do not know who stole it). The office is being
redecorated (it is unimportant who is doing it). The burglar has been arrested (it is
obvious that the police arrested him).
 When the action itself is more important than the person/people who do it, as in news
headlines, newspaper articles, formal notices, advertisements, instructions, processes
The wedding ceremony will be held on October 15th.
 When we want to avoid taking responsibility for an action , or when we refer to an
unpleasant event and we do not want to say whi or what is to blame
Ten passengers were killed in the accident .

Changing from the active to the passive:

 The object of the active sentence becomes the subject in the passive sentence .
 The active verb remains in the same tense but changes into a passive form
 The subject of the active sentence becomes the agent , and is either introduced with the
preposition by or is omitted .
 Only transitive verbs can be changed into the passive
 Note : some transitive verbs (have , exist , seem , fit , suit , resemble , lack etc ) cannot
be changed into the passive .
 We can use the verb to get instead of the verb to be in everyday speech when we talk
about things that happen by accident or unexpectedly
 By + the agent is used to to say who or what carries out the action .
 The verbs hear , help , see and make are followed by the bare infinitive in the
active , but by the to -infinitive in the passive
She made me clean my room . I was made to clean my room
 Let becomes be allowed to in the passive

Causative form :
 we use have + object + past participle to say that we have arranged for someone to do
something for us. The past participle has a passive meaning.
Jackie had her hair dyed .
 questions and negations of the verb have are formed with do /does ( present simple) or
did ( past simple) .
Did you have your hair cut yesterday ?
 we also use have something done to talk about an unpleasant experience that
somebody had .
 we can use the verb get instead of have in informal conversation .

his bike have very different meanings . In the first case , Tony arranged for someone else

Adverbs - Engleza Admitere Academia de Politie

Adverbs usually describe verbs, adjectives, other adverbs or sentences. An adverb can be
one word (quickly) or a phase (in the afternoon). Adverbs can
describe manner (how),place (where), time (when), frequency (how often), degree (to what
extent). Formation of adverbs:
a) We usually form an adverb by addin -ly to the adjective. extreme - extremely;
b) Adjectives ending in -le drop the e and take -y . simple - simply;
c) Adjective endin in consonant +y drop the y and take -ily. lucky-luckily;
d) Adjectives ending in -l take -ly . actual -actually.
 The adverbs loud, cheap, quick, tight, fair and slow are often used without -ly. She
speaks loud.
 Some adverbs have the same form as adjectives such as: hard, fast, free, high, low,
deep, early, late, long, near, straight, right, wrong. Also hourly, daily, weekly, and yearly.
 The adverbs below have two forms, each with a different meaning: They buried the
treasure deep underground (= a long way down ). He is deeply depressed (=very)

Order of adverbs :

 Adverbs usually go after verbs but before adjectives , other adverbs and
participles . He walks slowly ( manner) . The film was absolutely amusing ( degree)
 Sometimes adverbs go before the main verb , eg the adverbs of frequency ( often ,
always ) . He often plays tennis at weekends
 When there are two or more adverbs in the same sentence, they usually come in the
following order : manner - place - time . The little child was playing happily in the garden
all day yesterday .
 If thre is a verb of movement ( go , come , leave etc ) in the sentence , then , the
adverbs come in the following order : place - manner - time . John went to school on foot
this morning .

shopping tomorrow (time).
Adjectives - Engleza Admitere Academia de Politie

plural. a huge tree/huge trees
 Adjectives can also be used alone after the verbs be, look, smell, sound, feel, taste,
seem, appear, become, get, stay etc.
 There are two kinds of adjectives: opinion adjectives (interesting, fantastic) which show
what a person thinks of somebody or something, and fact adjectives (old, fat, short)
which give us factual information about size, age, colour, origin, material etc.
 There are also compound adjectives which are formed with:
a) Present participles: long-lasting journey
b) Past participles: broken-down car
c) Cardinal numbers + nouns : a three-day trip
Well , badly + past participle: well -informed people

Order of adjectives
 Opinion adjectives go before fact adjectives: a beautiful Italian girl
 When there are two or more fact adjectives in a sentence, they usually go in the
following order: size-age- shape-colour-origin-material-used for/be about-noun a
small, old , square ,Chinese table

described by one, two or three adjectives at the most.

As /Like
We use like :
 With nouns/pronouns/-ing form to express similarity
 With feel, look, smell, taste. She looks like her sister.
We use as to say what somebody or something really is. He works as a waiter.

Comparatives and Superlatives

We use the comparatives to compare one person or thing with another. We use
the superlatives to compare one person or thing with more than one person or thing of the same
group. We often use than after a comparative and the before a superlative.
Formation of comparatives and superlatives from adjectives and adverbs:
 With one-syllable adjectives we add -(e)r to form the comparative and -(e)est to form the
superlative. note: for one syllable adjectives ending in a vowel + a consonant, we double
the consonant. big-bigger-bigges.
 With two-syllable adjectives ending in -ly , -y ,-w , we also add -er, -est . note: for
adjectives ending in a consonant +y, we replace the -y with -I . tiny -tinier-tinest
 With other two -syllable adjectives or adjectives with more than two syllables,
comparatives and superlatives are forms with more/most
 With adverbs that have the same form as their adjectives, we add -er/-est
 Two -syllable or compound adverbs take more / most , slowly - more slowly -most slowly
Note: clever, common, cruel, friendly, gentle, pleasant, polite, shallow, simple, stupid, quiet can
form their comparatives and superlatives either with -er/-est or with more/most
 Irregular forms:
Good-better-best / bad -worse -worst
Much -more-most/little-less-least

Conditionals - Engleza Admitere Academia de Politie
Type 2 and 3 Conditionals
Conditionals Type 2 (unreal present) are used to express imaginary situations which are
contrary to facts in the present, and therefore are unlikely to happen in the present or the future.
We can use either was or were for i, he, she, it, in the if -clause. We can also use the
structure if i were you .... to give advice.
If + past simple / past continuous -> would / could / might +present bare infinitive
If i knew how to do it, i would help.
If Bill was working today , we would see him .
If i were , i would tell her the truth .
Conditionals Type 3 (unreal past) are used to express imaginary situations which are
contrary to facts in the past. They are also used to express regrets or criticism .
If + past perfect /past perfect continuous -> would /could /might +perfect bare infinitive
If they had asked me , i would have helped .
If i hadn‘t been working today , we would have gone to the beach.

Type 0/1 Conditionals:

Type 0 conditionals are used to express a general truth or a scientific fact. In this type of
conditional we can use when instead of if.

If -clause Main Clause

If /when + present simple ->present simple

If /when you mix black and white paint, you get grey.

Type 1 conditionals are used to express a real or very probable situation in the present
or future.

If -clause Main Clause

If + present-> future simple, imperative, can /must /may etc + bare infinitive

If I finish work early tonight , i will /might /etc go out with Tony.

When the hypothesis comes before the main clause , we separate them with a comma. When
the main clause comes before the if-clause , then we do not use a comma to separate them.
Note: with type 1 conditionals we can use unless+ affirmative verb (=if +negative verb ) . i
will not be able to come unless Bill gives me a lift . (= if Bill does not give a lift , ...)

Mixed Conditionals
We can form mixed conditionals , if the context permits it , by combining an if-clause from one
type with a main clause from another .
If -clause Main Clause
Type 2 Type 1
If he came back late last night he won't be on time for work today .

Type 2 Type 3
If i were polite You wouldn't have talked to him like that .
