September 01, 2020
Another Learning style is the Auditory learning. Children who are auditory learners can better process and understand information just by hearing them. In school they may be the ones who can easily pick up and follow verbal instructions given by their teacher. They would not need to read or experience it for them to grasp the concept.
They are likely to excel in assignments that foreground skills like listening and talking, such as class presentations, classroom debates and recitations. However, this type of learners are easily distracted by noise as they are prone to focus and listen to things around them. Below are some common characteristics that will help you identify if your little one is an auditory learner.
- Great memory for music and lyrics- one type of activity they enjoy most are singing or listening to music. They would rather listen to stories than to colour or build Lego blocks.
- Enjoys participating in discussions- they love to hear and be heard. As much as they love listening they also love to talk. This is their way to process the information and retain it in their memory. During revision, it is also a great technique for them to repeat the contents of what they are trying to memorise.
- They can easily follow verbal instructions- while the other two types of learning methods include hands-on experience, visual maps and written instructions, Auditory learners just needs to hear the instructions and it will be clear as day for them.
