Being Taught...what tense or voice is this?
In the sentence below I don't get the part," being taught" is that the object of the verb "Do" and if it is, is it in the passive voice? Is it a gerund in a passive form?
"I don’t recall ever being taught the difference between x and y".
Looking at your sentence, it seems to be using the past progressive in the passive voice.
I'm a bit unsure about this question (to be 100% honest).
"I don't remember being told that" is constructed the same way.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
