Hello Omar931,

There is no particular order in Word on the Street. Just choose a topic, watch the first video a couple of times, and then watch it again while reading the Transcript. Then do the exercises. Be sure to keep track of new vocabulary, and practise pronouncing phrases from the video - try to make your pronunciation as close as possible to the video's. Then move on to the next video.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
