I'd say the opposite: English speakers tend to avoid the passive. Teachers of English routinely discourage use of passives on the ground that they are weak and ambiguous. "It will get done." Who will do it? Why won't you say?
The passive has become associated with weaseling politicians. It's a standing joke these days that a politician caught in corruption or some other scandal, instead of saying, "Yes, I did wrong and I beg forgiveness," will say -- and this has become a stock phrase -- "Mistakes were made." Like, wow, a crime just committed itself, I was so surprised when I saw it happen.
You do often see the passive in instructions of various kinds. Instead of saying, "You should now add butter to the pan" or "Add butter to the pan now", they will say, "Butter should now be added to the pan." That's probably the most common accepted use in English.
