Visual learner is a person that really likes to see more than listening or touching. About 40 percent of people are visual learners. Visual learners get benefits from when they looking at diagrams, charts, pictures, films or written directions. Plus, they do well on writing assignment or writing some notes. They have some disadvantages too. Which are listening and responds test. Those things involved hearing. Second are auditory learners. Usually auditory learners are who learn best thorough hearing.

Plus it can improve your studying skills and change your studying habit. Some may think that I am different from others. But it’s not wrong to have different learning styles with your friends or family, because all the 3 learning styles have benefit and disadvantages and remember it’s just your education method.
