  2. Romain said:

    I learn well when something is said to me. I can always recall the conversation and the words that were said.

  3. Indipile Nyuke said:

    This is exactly me . When ever I’m about to study I make summary of my notes and take important and easy words to remember , and read them out loud when studying.

  4. Bruce Weaver said:

    I read the study material and test questions out loud so I can hear the material and understand it better. I also ask myself questions and answer my question out loud. I call it thinking out loud. It helps me focus on the task and subject at hand.

    I learn best by being able to ask questions and gain a greater understanding of how and why things work that way.

    Using the Aural Learning style is my favorite and most fun and useful way to learn about new topics and teaching about old ones, that I have experienced by sharing with others and them sharing their experiences with me and others.

    I think I am because even if I’m not watching the lectures, but I focus more on listening to the lecturer who’s presenting makes it easier for me grasp the information

    • Matthew Manlulu said:

      I’m an aural learner too because I listen to my teacher and my classmates about what they’re saying in class.

    Yes, this is completely me, especially having to say somethings over and over my way to understand them.

    I was completely surprised at these results. I am definitely “aural” “in all things” and I completely identify with “all “of the above comments. Thank You

    I don’t easily forget what I hear from people and I benefit so much from the discussion. Through discussion, I am able to understand people’s different opinions.

  11. Larissa said:

    I notice that I do lean to aural but also I have a very active brain that is always distracting me so that can prevent me from hearing the things I need to learn.

    • Rowan said:

      I found a weird trick. for this! I noticed that my attention was always being pulled to other sensory things so I used my energy to “Neutralize” distractions. I don’t even focus on what is being said necessarily I just zone in and get my surroundings under control.

      I’m aware this is a super individual experience and I’m not giving great direct instruction. But feel free to reply with how this works for you and I will see if I can re-explain it.

    When I teach someone something I can never forget it, once we argue about something I can never forget it, participating in class and asking questions and engaging in debates engraved the info in my brain.

  13. Grace said:

    I usually can never focus when I am in class. I get distracted and bored easy.

  14. karen said:

    I usually cannot focus on voices. Other things distract me. I would need to listen more than once.

    • Nomxolisi said:

      I usually cannot focus on videos.other thinks distract me. I would need to listen more than once.

    • Nhlakanipho said:

      Me too, always rewinding when I rewinded excessively when listening to online lectures

    • teresa luchetti said:

      me too!

  15. David said:

    I find myself drifting in and out of lectures and missing the point. I’ve found that teachers’voices more than anything help me concentrate or not.
