A Theoretical Study About Motivating Auditory Learners

Ahmad Fawzi Shamsi

Abstract


The teaching process has had a lot of changes in the last few decades. A lot of new methods started looking for the learners from a different point of view, and a lot of teachers have tried to change their methods of teaching to achieve a level that can satisfy all the students’ abilities. One of the recent studies shows that learners are of different kinds; the students’ abilities of learning vary according to the things presented in class. There are auditory, visual, audiovisual, and kinesthetic learners. The studies even show that when teachers prepare their lessons according to the kinds of learners they have, the results will be higher, and the class will change from a typical class to an interactive one. In this article, there will be a focus on one kind of those learners that is the auditory learners. In this study, a theoretical theory was used to determine the main characteristics of the auditory learners. Another thing, there are some tactics that have proved their effectiveness in motivating such learners, which in turn make the learners achieve better results.
