Everyone learns differently. There are four main types of learners:

  • Visual: You learn best through visual media.
  • Auditory: You learn best by listening and speaking.
  • Kinesthetic: You learn best by doing things.

Sometimes, “reading and writing” is added as a fourth learning style. Reading and writing is similar to visual learning, with a stronger emphasis on written text.

Some 65% of the population are visual learners. Visual learners – as the name suggests – learn best through interacting with charts, graphs, diagrams, maps, and other forms of visual media.

If you’re a visual learner, you might find some forms of visual media more stimulating than others. Try different formats, such as:

  • Mind maps
  • Charts
  • Cartoons
  • Spider diagrams

Mind maps and spider diagrams are excellent for turning your knowledge into an easy-to-read, bitesize format. Cartoons are fun and effective, superb for science, history and geography.

Experiment with different learning formats and find your groove!
