Auditory Learners

Characteristics of Auditory Learners

Auditory learners learn best by hearing information. They can usually remember information more accurately when it has been explained to them orally. The following characteristics are typical of individuals with strong auditory processing skills:

1. Auditory learners can remember quite accurately details of information they hear during conversations or lectures.

2. They have strong language skills, which include a well-developed vocabulary and an appreciation for words.

3. The strong language skills often lead to strong oral communication skills. They can carry on interesting conversations and can articulate their ideas clearly.

4. Because of a "fine tuned ear," auditory learners may find learning a foreign language to be relatively easy.

5. Auditory learners often have musical talents. They can hear tones, rhythms, and individual notes with their strong auditory skills.
