As the name suggests, Auditory learners learn best while they are actively listening. Auditory learners find conventional study practices, such as making notes directly from a textbook, not terribly effective. They much prefer to ingest information through audio or video clips, or by discussing a topic. While they are not rabid note-takers in class, they are able to take in what they need simply by listening intently. Combine this with a tendency to want to talk, auditory learners can sometimes appear disruptive or uninterested in class. Are you or is your teen an Auditory Learner?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
