Hi, this is One Word English. You are going to learn one word and many ways of using it.

Today we’re gonna learn about very simple word Head. This is what we call head, right? But this word has other meanings.

Look at this man.

He wants to catch an alligator and hit the headlines.

Ok, let’s see what the word head means in these sentences.

The first phrase “This is the head of our head-quarters” means “This is the director of our main office”.

“He’s heading for the head of the Mississippi river” means “He’s going in the direction of the source (or beginning) of the Mississippi river”.

The next phrase “hit the headlines” means “be on the front-pages of newspapers”.

Let’s repeat these sentences together.
