Grammar Rule No.1 Use Active Voice

Every human language starts an active sentence with the subject, or the “doer.” In English, the verb (what’s being done) follows the subject. If there is an object (the receiver of the action), it comes after the verb. The formula looks like this:

S+V+O. This rule is the foundation of the English language.

Here are some examples:
• Mary walked the dog.
• The dog liked Mary.
• I did not like the dog.
