Introduction• There are more than just visual learners. We can find visual, auditory and kynesthetic learners.• While it is true that each student learns in each of these ways, there is one particular style that the student is stronger.• Here we are going to talk about the visual style.
Introduction to Visual Learners• Visual learners are able to memorise information through the sense of sight. We are more likely to learn information when we use images, pictures with a great variety of colours, maps and interactive activities.• In our mind we can visualize objects, words and plans.
Characteristics1. Visual learners pick up written information quickly.2. Visual Learners love to read
Characteristics3. Visual learners are quite fast reading as long as they know all or most of the vocabulary written. – For example, they can locate words quickly in the dictionary if they know the spelling.
Characteristics4. Frequently visual students appear to daydream. – often have a blank expression during lectures or class discussion.

In conclusion, visual learners will have ahigher level of the knowledge retention ifwe study through visual methods.We need stimulation to put more effortin our learning.
