Surely, we all have different dreams of what the future should be like.

Some of those dreams seem  more feasile, while others could be considered totally unbelievable, impractical or extravagant. So it’s good to find an expert, a reputed scientist who throws some  light on what’s going on in the science labs around the world and brings us a showcase of the next inventions humankind will create.

Listen to Professor Michio Kaku telling what the world be like in about 20 years.

Basically, the passive form has  three basic elements:

 be  + past participle +  by…agent

as you can see in this example:

passiveagent
