Hi everyone,

It has been INCREDIBLY wet and the rain does not seem to be wanting to stop. The northern Kanto area has received torrential rain and many people have been evacuated to safety. As I watch the news reports I can not help but think of the many friends I have who live in Saitama, Gunma, Tochigi and Ibaraki. Rivers bursting their banks and flooding towns. People being lifted to safety by helicopter. Water is such a powerful and dangerous thing. Take care everyone!!


Last week, I asked you about some singular and plural forms that are irregular. Did you get them????? Here are the answers!

Well, for today I have a very important grammar pattern for you. The ACTIVE VOICE and the PASSIVE VOICE. I am sure that you have studied these.

WHY is the passive voice used?

Can you change these sentences, which are in the active voice, to the passive voice? One of these sentences you can not, so be careful!!!!

He has sent the letter to his brother.

We use the yen in Japan.
