Skipping words in Vim

5w 

or

5e

will skip forward 5 words in vim

5b

will skip backwards by 5 words (word beginning)

So what is the difference between 'w', and 'e'?
w => word beginning
e => word ending

Bonus,
See :help word-motions for details.

Still not sure? Learn by trying out on an example sentence in your vim editor.

Happy learning!
