Do you like reading? Or is writing more your forte? How about practical work? Each and every individual will have a preferred learning style.
Some people are visual learners; they will have a preference for seen or observed things, including pictures, diagrams, demonstrations, displays and handouts.
Others are auditory learners, these people will use phrases such as ‘show me’; ‘let’s have a look at that’. These are the people who will work from lists and written directions and instructions.
Lastly are Kinaesthetic learners, they have a preference for physical experience – touching, feeling, holding, doing, and practical hands-on experiences. These people will use phrases such as ‘let me try’, ‘how do you feel?’ and will be best able to perform a new task by going ahead and trying it out, learning as they go.
When you know your preferred learning style(s) you understand the type of learning that best suits you, which enables to you to choose the style of learning that work best for you. So before you start your next course of study, take the time to figure out what works and find the right course that trains the way you learn!
