LESSON A-5: Learning Styles

 

Visual learners learn things best by seeing them. Do you like to keep an eye on the teacher by sitting in the front of the class and watching the lecture closely? Do you like when a lesson includes charts or pictures?

Auditory learners learn best by hearing things. Do you struggle to understand by reading but then understand as you listen to the class lecture?
