Auditory Learners

People who are primarily auditory (hearing-based) learners process the world best through their ears. They notice how things sound; they remember how a word is spelled by sounding it out in their “mind’s ear.” Auditory learners love lectures, discussions, radio news shows, and audiotapes, they like to learn from listening to, and interacting with, knowledgeable people. They tend to understand new tasks better if someone tells them what to do. They like learning situations that allow for asking and answering questions. Radio news and music can be important sources of stimulation for them.

Auditory learners sometimes find reading to be boring. Maps and written directions without a verbal explanation can be confusing. They may find it frustrating to be asked to do a task without a verbal explanation.
