Your Learning Style and You

Posted on: September 5, 2012

Some of us learn by listening. Others by doing. Still others by reading or talking or experimenting. We call these “learning styles,” and we all learn a little differently. What that means is that, to get the most out of school or anything where you need to learn, it can be helpful to understand how you learn best.

The three main learning styles are:

  • Visual – Visual learners pick up written information quickly—books, blackboards, overhead projectors.
  • Auditory – Auditory learners learn by listening to lectures or other spoken information.
  • Tactile – These are hands-on learners. People who learn by trying things themselves.

Which of these sound like you? Maybe you’re a mix of two or three? Understanding your own learning style can help you choose classes or opportunities that highlight your learning skills. It can also give you a clue as to where you might need to put in a little extra effort.

Fortunately, Everest offers a great mix of classroom and hands-on learning opportunities, so there’s something to fit every learning style. Contact Everest learn more about which learning opportunities can help you be most successful.
