Have you ever wondered why it’s easier for you to comprehend some things better than others? It has something to do with your learning style. Every student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information differently. There are three primarily learning styles:
- Visual Style
Visual learners learn best when they have an image, picture or mind map to help them process information.
- Verbal Style
Verbal learners learn best by reading content aloud or listening to someone speak the information.
- Physical Style
Physical learners don’t learn until they do it, draw out their own diagrams or role play to learn new information.
There are is no right or wrong way to learn. Many students use a combination of learning styles while others learn best by just following one style. In addition to the abovementioned learning styles, there are also others such as auditory, logical, social and solitary learning styles. If you don’t know your learning style yet, it is worth taking the time to figure it out because there are many benefits to discovering how you process information best. Have a look at some of the benefits of figuring out your learning style:

I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.
Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.
My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.
I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
