    Passive voice

    Hello! I'd really appreciate any kind of advice you can give. Thank you!!

    One of my students asked me this question.

    Why is it that we don't usually say:
    This museum is visited by MY FATHER every year.

    When we can say:
    This museum is visited by A LOT OF PEOPLE around the world every year.
