Visual, Auditory, Kinesthic (VAK or VARK)

One family of models emphasizes the sensory modalities of informing stimuli. The models in this family may use different terms to describe same or similar learning styles.

These models often describe four basic learning styles:

Visual learning (learn by seeing)

verbal/auditory (learn by hearing)

reading/writing (learn by processing text) (This category is not always listed.)

Kinesthetic learning or practical (learn by doing).

In such models, the term multi-modal describes people who have more than one strong learning style.
