Researchers at the University of Western Ontario have provided some tips for those who have an auditory learning style or who need to absorb information in that sensory system (hearing or reading) in a specific situation. When listening, sit towards the front of the room so you can hear well and avoid being distracted by sounds others make; repeat information silently to yourself as you take notes. When reading, repeat information either silently or aloud; use rhymes or jingles to remember key points; for terminology, think about how parts of the words sound ; consider studying with a partner, taking turns reading to each other and discussing key concepts. Some auditory learners like to record themselves verbalizing key points and then play the recording back as a rehearsal strategy. (Source)

If an “Auditory” activity triggers: the conscious mind learns most easily by discussing; the subconscious mind learns most easily by talking to help sort thoughts; the unconscious mind hears the “whole” of something. (Markova, Dawna, PhD. The Open Mind. p 58-60. CA: Conari Press, 1996.)
