Living in the Present

Learning to appreciate the things around me and trying to live a life without regrets

How I learn best

I just took a learning styles test online and it’s amazing how accurate the results are:

Kinesthetic Learner

INTAKE 

  • all your senses - sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing …
  • lecturers who give real-life examples
  • Recipes - solutions to problems, previous exam papers

STUDY

  • Put plenty of examples into your summary. Use case studies and applications to help with principles and abstract concepts.
  • Talk about your notes with another “K” person.
  • Use pictures and photographs that illustrate an idea.

OUTPUT

  • Write practice answers, paragraphs…
  • Role play the exam situation in your own room.

Aural Learner

INTAKE

  • describe the overheads, pictures and other visuals to somebody who was not there
  • leave spaces in your notes for later recall and ‘filling’
  • attend classes

STUDY

  • Read your summarised notes aloud.
  • Explain your notes to another ‘aural’ person.

OUTPUT

  •  Imagine talking with the examiner.
  • Spend time in quiet places recalling the ideas.
