The differences between different learning styles

Have you ever wondered why it’s easier for you to understand or remember some things better than others? We believe that it has something to do with your learning style. Every student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information differently. There are three primarily learning styles. I wonder which one works best for you?

Visual Style - Visual learners learn best when they have an image, picture or mind map to help them process information.

Verbal Style - Verbal learners learn best by reading content aloud or listening to someone speak the information.

Physical Style - Physical learners don’t learn until they do it, draw out their own diagrams or role play to learn new information.

There is no right or wrong way to learn. Most students use a combination of learning styles whilst others learn best by using one style. In addition to the three mentioned learning styles, there are also others such as auditory, logical, social and solitary learning styles.

It might just be a good time to work with your child or teenager to find out how they learn and the impact this has on their ability and willingness to learn new material.
