The ditransitive verb helps us express actions involving two objects. Remember the phrase 鈥淚 was given the opportunity to work on a big marketing campaign鈥? This structure is useful when we want to highlight the action and the recipient, without necessarily mentioning the giver.

  • Let鈥檚 look at three simple examples:
    Sarah showed me the car.
    Anna told me a story.
    Ravi gave me a pen.

  • When we use the ditransitive verb structure, the emphasis is on the action and the receiver. For instance:
    I was shown the car by Sarah.
    I was told a story.
    I was given a pen.

Common ditransitive verbs include buy, give, pass, send, show, tell, make, grant, land, serve, and teach. These verbs help us convey actions involving two objects in a clear and concise manner.
