A learning style is a way of learning that is best for you, also known as a learning preference.
How I learn best:-
Visual = 6Auditory = 4Read/write = 2Kinesthetic = 11
Having a strong Kinesthetic score I am a DOING LEARNER
I prefer for example:
Lab work Field Trips Being given real life examples Hands–on practical work
