Auditory Learning

Auditory3

Auditory learners absorb concepts or lessons by hearing and listening

Lectures are the best way for them to understand and remember things. They like to learn by reading out loud so they can hear the information and the way it sounds. Auditory learners often find themselves humming or talking to themselves when they’re bored. Professors and teammates can get upset at these students because they appear to not be paying attention, when in reality they have understood everything said.
