suggestion for learning new sections

when a user is starting a new section of a course and you are giving sentences with 1 new word in them, rather than just highlighting the new word, I'd suggest, just for the first time it appears, to by default have the meanings displayed underneath it, because in my case, I get a sentence and I know all the other words but then I have to mouseover that one word to get the meaning, if it was already displayed this would save time. I realize some people might enjoy guessing the word, but whenever I assume a word means what it looks like, I can often be wrong.

Just an idea.

This is a good idea, it's basically an empty mouse movement...for 95% of the new words, I don't know them. Don't make me move my wrist!
