An animated drawing accompanies each sentence to illustrate the meaning of each word and sentence. You can watch the Word Ahead videos individually or in a continuous stream. All of the Word Ahead videos can be viewed directly on their website or you can embed the Word Ahead widget into your own blog or website.
