ESOL Rs/L2.1a

Use implicit and explicit grammatical knowledge, alongside own knowledge and experience of context, to help follow meaning and judge the purpose of different types of text
(i) Use knowledge of different forms of sentence and clause structure, e.g. passive and conditional constructions, inverted, embedded and non-finite clauses, to work out meaning and to confirm understanding
(ii) Recognise that some grammatical forms and types of word signal the level of formality of a text, e.g. passive verbs in reports, abstract nouns in discursive prose
(iii) Recognise that specific grammatical devices are used to persuade, e.g. deliberate ambiguity, rhetorical questions, repetition

Passive verb forms is a useful 1 page reference sheet for L1 and L2 ESOL (and tutors).
