We use the passive voice in Spanish when the action is more important than the agent, or we are referring to the person or object receiving the action rather than the one doing it. E.g. El Tah Majal fue construido por Shah Jahan.

On this occasion, we will concentrate on the regular verbs and their conjugations.
