Seriously, no else noticing that almost none of the sentences in the Passive lesson are actually passive??

I'm wondering if it's a difference in what is considered 'passive' in English vs passive in Korean.

Many of these are causatives. Feed = make eat.

Some are real passive forms. 안다 = to hug; 안기다 = to be hugged.

You can also have a passive causative, like to be fed.

There are some other forms, where I have been memorizing sentences without understanding how to make more like them.

It is unfortunate that there are no hints for this lesson to explain these different forms.
