There are a variety of different ways we learn:
- Visual learners learn best when they can see pictures or images.
- Aural (auditory-musical) learners learn by listening, and often their learning is enhanced by infusing sound and music.
- Verbal (linguistic) learners prefer using words and like to discuss and write for understanding.
- Physical (kinesthetic) learners learn by using their body and hands; using and manipulating items with their hands help with their ability to understand.
- Logical (mathematical) learners prefer to learn using logic, reasoning, and systems.
- Social (interpersonal) learners enjoy learning best in groups or social settings.
- Solitary (interpersonal) learners learn best alone and like to use self-study.
