Well how I
learn depends upon so many things... However I am an "audio person"
so I chose auditory. It´s hard to explain but I sort of can’t visualize stuff
in my head it’s all just a blur, however sounds I can remember and imagine
pitch perfect. Having that said, sometimes a picture can explain everything I
need to know, meaning I learn a lot more efficiently. So in the case of crash
course for example; I find myself having a hard time learning much from it
unless I already had an idea about it before I started watching. (Meaning it’s
perfect to go through right before a test on the subject!) And I think this is because
of the fact that both brothers speak so quickly that I can’t keep up. Now one
part of me tells me that it’s because I can’t learn stuff in that speed, it’s
too quick. Then another part of me try to tell me the thing I sort of don’t
want to hear; that English isn’t my first language and that not understanding
when someone speaks that quickly is more than ok! I don’t know why but it’s
sort of hard for me to accept that I will probably never be as good at English as
someone who’s grown up with it. However I don’t seem to be the only one struggling
with this, it is hard to accept and sometimes you meet or see people who think
they know English perfectly, but they don’t. And that’s fine! But yea I think
it’s a combination of both.
So… back to
the subject! When the thought bubble part of crash course comes up I seem to be
able to keep up and when it comes to learning on you tube the most effective
videos for me personally is the ones with both visual and audible aid. And one
more thing: I learn nothing when I’m forced to write in class. I don’t even
bring a pen or anything to write on to any of my classes anymore because in terms
of learning it’s the worst possible thing I could do! If there is something I
forget then I ask someone else who either remembers or who did take notes, but
I can never read the notes because I pretty much can’t learn from reading
either. So yea this sort of became like an essay, it’s so hard to stop yourself
though when you’re interested in the subject!
I'm some combination. It requires all 3 things for the best results. I have to be able to hear what I'm trying to learn rather than read it, and I have to be drawing something as I listen which requires visual and tactile. Just seeing pictures isn't enough, but I don't necessarily have to be drawing anything related to the lesson. As long as I'm putting images on paper, I'm making easy connections to all the things that I'm hearing. Sort of like when I leave a movie playing while I make big abstract sketches; that may look like some wavy lines and this other part might somewhat resemble eyes, but I can tell you exactly what was happening in the story while I was drawing them.
Of note, I have synaesthesia and have serious problems with focus while reading. I prefer nonfiction, because I'm too easily distracted when reading fiction. If I want to read fiction, I pretty much have to lock myself away from the world and tackle it in one sitting or I'll be on to some other project and never pick up the book again. I had to do just about every book assignment that way in school.
but i have been forced to be auditory because I ccan't see what my teacher writes/draws on the board or has on the projecter.
yeah...visual impairement problems
