Learning styles are broken down into three categories: auditory, visual and kinetic. Everyone uses a combination of these three learning styles, but usually favor one over the other two. Knowing what your learning style is can be a great help when it comes to making a personalized study plan. Not sure what style you favor? We broke them down to help you identify your style.
Do you find that you can read an entire chapter in your textbook, but barely remember anything it said? And do you find that you do really well in lecture-style classes? Then you might be an auditory learner. Auditory learners would rather listen to something explained than read about it, and may find themselves reading aloud to aid their studying.

Is science lab your favorite part of the day? Then you might learn best by doing it yourself. Kinetic learners learn best by participating in an activity, and sometimes struggle to sit still and study. Rewriting your notes and drawing pictures and charts can help you absorb information.
Once you know your learning style, you will feel much more confident and calm when it comes to doing homework and studying for exams. Ready to apply to college? South College will give you a personalized experience from the start. Apply today!
