First of all, look at the definition in the dictionary:

Main Entry: van·guard
Pronunciation: 'van-"gärd also 'va[ng]-
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English vantgard, from Middle French avant-garde, from Old French, from avant- fore- (from avant before, from Late Latin abante) + garde guard —more at ADVANCE
Date: 15th century
1 : the troops moving at the head of an army
2 : the forefront of an action or movement
- van·guard·ism /-"gär-"di-z&m/ noun
- van·guard·ist /-dist/ noun

Now, pick the synonym that you recognize = "forefront" perhaps. Write a sentence with that (perhaps "advance guard") and then substitute the new word = vanguard
