How Do I Learn Best?????

Aural or Auditory learners are those who learn best through hearing things.

You listen to messages in your mind. You can repeat conversations or verbal input word for word. You often know all the words to songs. Radios, iPods, etc. play an important role in your life. You may say, 'I hear you' or 'Sounds good' when you understand.
You may struggle to understand a chapter you've read, but then experience a full understanding as you listen to the class lecture or when you discuss it with others.

Helpful Hints for Improving Auditory Input:

  • Ask questions in class and listen carefully to the replies.
  • ipod_heart.jpgRead the textbook and notes aloud to yourself as you study.
  • Record your textbook or class notes and listen back on your ipod.
  • Teach yourself to read aloud in your mind without making sound. During exams, you can hear the test questions as well as see them.
  • Study with others. Talk about the course material.
  • Tell others (or talk to your pets, toys, photo of someone) what you are learning in class. Mentally replay these conversations during an exam.
  • Speak positively to yourself during your work.
  • Proofread your assignments out loud.
  • You may want to try setting a long or difficult idea to music or put ideas into a rap song.
