  • ahead. Yeah. We have five meanings today and we'll give definitions and of course

  • examples for each of these five meanings. Here's the first one to progress or

  • advance in life. Okay. Many people still believe that you need a college

  • education to get ahead in life. So to advance in life. So that's one of the

  • ways that we use it. Or we have a second example for this one too. Some women

  • their career. So if they hit that glass ceiling maybe that's their limits. They

  • don't feel they can advance more beyond that. Okay. Good.

  • Number two. Sometimes we just get head to simply mean to save money. I'm trying to

  • put away money for a house but I cannot get ahead these days. Meaning I can't

  • money. All right number three. To move ahead of someone or something. So this is

  • physically to get ahead of them. I'm trying to make this train, but I cannot get

  • leave and if they weren't there maybe he could run maybe could almost make it. But

  • they're blocking his way. They're slowing him down. They're small children. He can't

  • afford to run and he doesn't want to knock any of them down. So he's probably
