W czasie Present Simple

Podobnie jak w języku polskim, także w języku angielskim występuje strona bierna czasownika. Strona bierna czasownika w czasie Present Simple składa się z czasownika ‘to be’ w formie czasu Present Simple (am, are, is) oraz imiesłowu biernego czasownika głównego. Czynności dzieją się w terażniejzości. Stronę bierną używamy wtedy, gdy nie jest ważne, kto wykonuje daną czynność lub wtedy, gdy nie wiemy kto wykonuje czynność. Jeśli chcemy powiedzieć, kto wykonuje daną czynność, używamy przyimka ‘by’, np. The room is cleaned by the students. Nie używamy zwrotów ‘by someone’ , ‘by people’.
