Auditory learners are expressive and able to communicate well with others.
Auditory learners tend to retain information more thoroughly when the information is reinforced through sound. They learn best through lectures, discussions, and listening to themselves process information.

Kinesthetic learners are sensitive and very aware of feelings.
Kinesthetic learners need their bodies to be in action in order to learn and master skills. Provide opportunities for them to touch, sort, build, take things apart, or simply move while learning. They connect well with learning that involves the emotions, imitation, role-playing, and field trips. They will have little motivation when they cannot see how learning connects to life.
