Learning Styles
What sort of learner are you...


Have you ever learned something enthusiastically, been able to tell others about it and use what you have learned immediately? Have you sometimes, however, tried to learn something, felt it was a waste of time and learned nothing?

You may have thought that it was just the subject matter that made the difference, but you might be surprised to know that it is not the entire reason! It may have been the way you happened to go about learning the new topic or the way it was taught to you.

Just as we are all very different people in the way we look, act and feel, we are also very different in the way we learn. Each of us has a learning style. If we can learn using the style we feel most comfortable with and learning can be presented to us in a style that matches our own, then we are more likely to learn well and enjoy the experience.

This questionnaire will help you to discover your preferred learning style. It will also give you some tips about how you might best use your style to study and learn more effectively.
