Personal passive


If there are more than one objects in the the active voice sentence (in dative, genitive or prepositional), they undergo no change during the active to passive voice conversion. Here is an example:

active   passive
Die Eltern schenken den Kindern eine Reise. Eine Reise wird den Kindern geschenkt.


Conversion rule:

  Dative, genitive and prepositional objects in the active voice sentence retain their function in the passive voice sentence.
