PHRASAL VERBS FOR THE OFFICE (FALL BEHIND)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday to you and welcome to our last lesson of the week.

This week we've focused on Phrasal Verbs for the Office and we are ending with the phrase TO FALL BEHIND

Definition: to fail to do something fast enough; to fail at keeping on a schedule for a project or job.

Example 1: Because of my vacation in August, I fell behind on work. 

Example 2: He fell behind with his project after he had surgery. 

Example 3: The delays in construction caused us to fall behind on finishing the building. 

This phrasal verb is INTRANSITIVE

That's all for this week. Next week we will look at multiple-choice questions from the BULATS English Exam (Business Language Testing Service). We will provide some short readings and a question similar to the ones you might see on the BULATS.

We will see you on Monday for the first lesson.

Have a great weekend!

PHRASAL VERBS FOR THE OFFICE (GO OVER)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Good morning, Daily Vitamin readers! I hope your day is going well. 

If you didn't read yesterday's lesson, then maybe you don't know about the change we are making to the Daily Vitamin this year. Each week, we will have a different theme. All of the lessons from the week will focus on that theme.

This week's theme is Phrasal Verbs for the Office. Yesterday's lesson was about the phrasal verb TO FOLLOW UP. Today's is TO GO OVER (something). There are several definitions of this phrasal verb but we are focusing on the one that is common at work and in business

Definition: to examine or look at something in a careful or detailed way

Example 1: Let's go over the meeting agenda before we begin. 

Example 2: Can I go over my presentation with you before I present tomorrow?

This phrasal verb is TRANSITIVE and is NOT SEPARABLE

That's all for today! If you didn't read yesterday's post, be sure to GO OVER it before reading tomorrow's lesson about the phrasal verb TO PUT OFF.

Thanks for reading!
