It takes hard work to win a race.
If you get tired and fall behind you might lose.
Today we are going to look at the phrasal verb to fall behind. It is an inseparable phrasal verb and it means to make less progress.
It refers to more than just physical progress. Let’s take a look:

If you don’t budget you might fall behind on your car payment.
So, remember: Don’t fall behind in your English studies!
