Learning Styles

7-Different-Learning-Styles

 

At Swim with Ease we try to tailor our lessons to an individual’s needs. People learn in different ways.

There are seven recognised learning styles:

 

 

Visual (Spatial) …

Aural (Auditory-Musical) …

Verbal (Linguistic) …

Physical (Kinaesthetic) …

Logical (Mathematical) …

Social (Interpersonal) …

Solitary (Intrapersonal)

It is usual for a person to have a dominant or preferred way of learning, though they may use aspects of all these different methods. We try to appeal to all learning styles whilst trying to identify what works best for you.

Examples of techniques we might use are:

Making sure to physically demonstrate as well as describe verbally (visual, verbal)

Guiding you through movements in the water e.g moving arms for you (kinaesthetic)

‘Humming’ when exhaling, which may appeal to the more musical (aural)

Counting to help with timing of movements and breathing, which may appeal to the more mathematically minded (logical)

Creating a conversational relationship (social)

Giving time for individual practice (solitary)
