Learning styles

People all learn in various styles. There are a number of models to understand the different ways that people learn best. The most common model is the VARK model with a sensory approach, identifying four primary types of learners. 

V – visual learners: learn better via seeing. 

A – auditory/aural learnerslearn predominately by listening and talking. 

R – read/write learnerslearn via written words. 

K – kinesthetic learners: learn by trying or hands on activities. 

People may have one dominant learning style. Most people have a combination of the visual, auditory, reading/writing or kinesthetic style in the VARK model, which is multi-modal style.
