Passive with Gerunds

This article is additional to the main page dedicated to the Passive Voice.

We should remember that there is a big group of verbs which are followed by a gerund. To put it briefly just to remind you, that means we should use a gerund after specific verbs. Gerund itself is an -ing form used as a noun.

For example 👇

I enjoy walking.

I avoid walking along in the evening.

She admitted having stolen the purse.

The same rule is applied when we you use gerunds with the passive.

For example 👇

My brother is getting better after being taken to the hospital.

I enjoyed being invited to the party.

She is star but she hates being interviewed.
