3. 一般将来时的被动语态构成:will+ be + 及物动词的过去分词

Trees are being planted over there by them. 他们在那里种植的树木。

5. 现在完成时的被动语态构成:has / have + been + 及物动词的过去分词

Your mistakes should be corrected right now. 你应该现在就改正你的错误。

The door may be locked inside. 这扇门可以反锁。

Your homework can be handed in tomorrow. 你的家庭作业可以明天交。

二、 怎样把主动语态改成被动语态?


1. 先找出谓语动词; 2. 再找出谓语动词后的宾语;

3. 把宾语用作被动语态中的主语; 4. 注意人称、时态和数的变化。

例:1. Bruce writes a letter every week. →A letter is written by Bruce every week. 布鲁斯每星期写一封信。

2. Li Lei mended the broken bike this morning.→The broken bike was mended by Li Lei this morning. 李雷今天上午在修理坏的自行车。

6. You must lock the door when you leave.→the door must be locked when you leave. 当你离开的时候你必须把门锁上。

三、 使用被动语态应注意的几个问题:

1. 不及物动词无被动语态。

What will happen in 100 years?一百年里会发生什么事?

  2. 有些动词用主动形式表示被动意义。

This pen writes well. 这支钢笔很好写。

This new book sells well. 这本新书卖的很好。

3. 感官动词或使役动词使用省略to的动词不定式,主动语态中不带to ,但变为被动语态时,须加上to 。

例:make somebody do something→somebody+ be +made to do something

see somebody do something→somebody +be +seen to do something

A girl saw my wallet drop when she passed by.→My wallet was seen to drop by a girl when she passed by. 一个女孩看到我的钱夹掉了当她经过的时候。

The boss made the little boy do heavy work.→The little boy was made to do heavy work by the boss. 这个老板让这小男孩干重活。

4. 如果是接双宾语的动词改为被动语态时,直接宾语(物)作主语,那么动词后要用介词,这个介词是由与其搭配的动词决定。

He gave me a book.→A book was given to me by him. 他给了我一本书。

He showed me a ticket.→A ticket was shown to me by him. 他给我展示了一张票。

My father bought me a new bike. →A new bike was bought for me by my father. 我父亲给我买了一辆新自行车。

5. 一些动词短语用于被动语态时,动词短语应当看作一个整体,而不能丢掉其中的介词或副词。

We can’t laugh at him. →He can’t be laugh at by us. 我们不能嘲笑他。

He listens to the radio every day. →The radio is listened to by him every day. 他每天都收听广播。

The nurse is taking care of the sick man. →The sick man is being taken care of by the nurse.这护士在照顾这个虚弱的男人。


一、构成 学习一般将来时的被动语态,首先应掌握其各种结构形式。






A) 肯定句:Anew stadium will be put up here.

否定句:Anewstadium will not(won't)be put up here.

疑问句及简略回答:Will a new stadium be put up here?Yes,it will./No,it won't.

特殊疑问句及回答:What will be put up here?A new stadium.

B)A lot of athletes will be invited to Beijing.But those who have used illegal drugs will not be invited.(但那些使用违禁药物的将不被邀请。)Will some world-famous singers be invited?Yes,they will.Who else will be invited?Some judges and sports officials,of course.



1.be going to be done;

2.be to be done;

3.will(shall)+get +done等。

例如: Some old buildings are going to be put down.

The 29th Olympic Games is to be held in Beijing in 2008.

The workers will get paid before the end of December.


These trees are not going to be cut down.Are these trees going to be cut down?Yes,they are.

The machines are not to be repaired tonight.Are they to be repaired tomorrow?Yes,they are.



1.在时间、条件状语从句中,应使用现在时表示将来时。同样,应使用现在时的被动语态表示将来时的被动语态。例如:He says he will leave the company if he is punished for this.


【误】A new film will shown at the cinema next week.

【正】A new film will be shown at the cinema next week.

【误】Is this bridge going to completed before the end of this year?

【正】Is this bridge going to be completed before the end of this year?


一: shall/will + be + done

【经典例题1】 I promise that this matter _____ next week.

A. will be taken care B. will take care of

C. will take good care D. will be taken care of

【思路点拨】 选D。从题干不难看出,一是从句中的 this matter 和 take care of 是被动关系;二是take care of 是固定搭配,不能拆开;三是相对于promise来说,take care of 是将要发生的动作。故从句谓语应用一般将来时的被动语态。

【经典例题2】 These dictionaries _____ the library again (by you ).

A. will be taken out of B. won’t be taken out of

C. will take out of D. won’t take out of


另外,我们还应注意:其疑问式为Shall/Will + 主语 + be + done...? 或 特殊疑问词 + shall/will + 主语 + be + done...?

【经典例题3】 Hundreds of jobs ______ if the factory closes.(NMET 2001北京春季)

A. lose B. will be lost C. are lost D. will lose

【思路点拨】答案选 B。lose jobs 的意思是“失业”。主语是jobs ,谓语动词要用被动语态。条件句中的谓语动词的一般现在时态表示将来。

2. 基本结构二: be(am / is /are)going to + be + done

【经典例题1】 The class ____ on everything they have learnt this year.

A. is going to be examining B. are going to examine

C. is going to be examined D. are going to be examined

【思路点拨】选D。题中the class指全班同学,谓语动词应用复数形式, 并且主语和谓语动词之间是被动关系, 所以谓语应用一般将来时的被动语态。

【经典例题2】 An exhibition of painting _____ at the art museum when he comes back from abroad.

A. is going to hold B. is going to be held

C. are going to hold D. are going to be held

【思路点拨】 选B。根据题意, 此处应用一般将来时的被动语态, 而且主谓应保持一致。

3. 基本结构三: be to + be + done

【经典例题1】The flowers_____ soon if you want to keep them alive

A. should water B. are watered C. water D. are to be watered


【经典例题2】In a room above the store, where a party_____ tomorrow, some workers are busily setting the table

A. is to be held B. has been held C. is being held D. was held

【思路点拨】选A。将来时的被动语态基本结构三: be to + be + done
