Kelly Richards of New York was tired of worrying all the time where the next dollar would come from. Life seemed merely a succession of bills and worrying about how to pay them. One late night while surfing the internet, her long hours of research finally paid off and she discovered a secret system that would help her get a break in life and beat the recession. She was finally able to provide for her three children while staying home with them. I read Kelly's blog last month and decided to feature her story in our local job report. Working online has been a big break for Kelly, who struggled for months going from one dead end job to another.

"I basically make $6,000-$8,000 a month online. " I asked her how she discovered her secret to success. People use their computers everyday but rarely do they think of using them to make money.

When I was first learning to teach, someone told me that students have to learn a word 9 times in order for it to really ‘stick’.

Rachael Roberts - Learning vocabulary through reading

I have no idea where that little gem came from, but I’m pretty sure someone made it up! Experience tells me that we grasp some items of vocabulary pretty quickly, while others slip through our fingers. There are probably various reasons for this: how much we ‘need’ the word, whether it is similar to a word in our own language or ‘makes sense’ to us in some way, how memorable the context was in which we learnt it and so on. However, while I don’t think there’s a magic number, repetition is certainly a key part of learning, and if we keep coming across a word or phrase while reading it will either make more and more sense to us, because we’re seeing it in different contexts, or we may even be motivated to go away and look it up.
