English [Auto] Welcome back. In this video I would like to talk with you about learning strategies for auditory learners and what we're going to do here in this video is actually quite similar to the last video I'm going to give you again 10 strategies that you can use in order to improve your existing auditory learning strategies. Now why exactly am I doing all of that with you. Well basically the idea behind this. Later on we want to connect these different kinds of learning strategies So for instance we want to connect auditory learning strategies with visual learning strategies. So what are we going to do again is we're going to have a look at 10 different strategies. Let's start with the first one. That one is attending discussions and presentations. Now where exactly should you go when you are an auditory learner. Well of course to places where there is audio whether someone talking and what could be the best place to go to of course discussions and or presentations. So when you go to a discussion or when you go to a presentation always make sure that you listen to every single word. You want to make sure that every single word you're remembering now of course is not possible to remember every single word. But what you can do is you can think about everything that the person says and through that you're going to generate a very deep knowledge and knowledge that will be there in the long term. Now most people they go to presentations they go to discussions and they listen but they don't comprehend it. So they listen to what the people say but they don't really remember they don't think about it. But if you are an auditory learner and the test that we did two videos ago if that test is showing you're right I'm an utter loner. Then make sure that you really focus on every single work word that these people say and try to figure out OK can I remember this how can I connected to other things in mind. Where exactly can I build bridges. Where can I connect. So basically then seconds strategy watch or listen to YouTube tutorials. Now YouTube tutorials are for instance for visual learners but also for auditory learners. So if you are a person that likes to listen to things you don't necessarily always have to watch what is going on. And the YouTube video you can also listen to it for instance you can listen to podcasts you can listen to some kind of audio tapes that are online you can listen to lectures you can listen to so many things often of course you need to know what is going on on the screen. And I think this will be a big problem for you at listening in general it's very important. So not you doing all the work but actually other people doing the work for you and then you are listening to them. You try to comprehend what these people say and think about what they're saying. So then Strategy number three read your summarized notes aloud. So when you take notes you want to make sure as soon as you have summarized all the important information that you read them out loud. Now what exactly do I mean by that. Well for instance when you study let's say for a month and you have an exam coming up then what you want to do is you want to take all the notes you want to put them together and you want to write down the things that are true. You want to write down the things that you're 100 percent sure about that are correct that you know about and then afterwards you want to read them out loud as many times as possible because auditory learners cannot just learn from other people. You can actually be the person that presents. And for me personally because I'm an auditory learner it is amazing to create on a media course because everything that I say that could perhaps be at some point not in my memory anymore. I'm just repeating it again and again and again and as I read it out again and again and again and through that I remember this knowledge. So always try to read out your summarized notes aloud that will make a difference for you. Believe me then strategy. Number four ask other people to listen to your to you and judge your understanding of the topic. So make sure that you have other people in your life who want to listen to you. So someone who can evaluate whether you're right or whether you're wrong. So what you want to do is you want another person to listen to you and then to basically judge whether he or she understood the topic. So you want to break down everything to the level that everyone can understand. You want to make sure that you know how to explain things and if you do that you focus on the words you focus on the sound you focus on how you structure your sentences and through that you're going to learn through that you're going to basically build knowledge that lies deep within your memory. That's Reggie number five focus on describing meaning's pictures and illustration charts and diagrams so what you want to do is you don't to describe things just with words. You want to not write them down but you want to say you want to say them you want to look at a picture or you look at a piece of text you want to look at an illustration chart or diagram and you want to explain it. You want to give as many information about as possible everything that you can find and you want to talk about. You want to talk about it with yourself and through that then you're going to generate deep knowledge you're going to generate knowledge that you know of you know that this is correct because you have been describing something you've been explaining something to well basically no one where actually yourself then Reiji number 6 record yourself explaining a topic and listen to it and fix it until you're happy with the explanation. Now this is again all about listening to something because as an editor auditory learner you don't necessarily just have to listen to other people. You can also listen to yourself. You can listen to what you say and you can fix your explorations. So for instance if your explanations are not perfect and you want to change something about them then just simply do so. You have the power you have the time at any given time. So basically what I want you to do is I want you to for instance take your phone and put in the open for instance the memo app. And then what I want you to do is just simply talk to it talk like put in in the explanation for a certain topic and then listen to yourself again and again and again. And for instance write down or tell yourself what you could do differently. And then the next time you explain that topic you try to do it differently you try to do better and you listen to yourself again and again and again until it really hits the nail on the head. So then the strategy. Number seven remember. Interesting samples and recite them. So when you learn something. Try to figure out where they are. Interesting examples that are somehow connected to this one thing and try to recite them as often as you can because if you remember examples you know exactly what the foundation is. So for instance when I talk about examples of how to learn I know about the type of learning I give you strategies for auditory learning and that helps me to remember what auditory learning is. And the same thing applies to this strategy. You focus on examples and by focusing on examples and knowing how they apply to a certain topic you know exactly what this topic is all about. So when you recite these examples what you're doing is you're not just reciting the examples you actually some are also recite the facts the fundament behind it. So then Strategy number eight always review information within 24 hours after you first heard them and you want to talk them you want to you want to say them aloud you want to really talk about them you want to talk about them on your own. You just want to talk to the wall or whatever and you just want to remember them through talking. So when you take for instance notes in class notes University notes somewhere at your job then within the next 24 hours read them out and remind yourself of what they are and what they saying. This will help you massively to remember things then spreading them a line. Leave spaces in notes and fill them in with your speech. So for instance when I look at the sentence it would basically be the spaces in and then nothing and fill them in with your own speech. I would say leave spaces in notes and fill them in with your speech. So what you want to do is you want to for instance have a text and then you just want to you know erase a couple of these spaces. You want it or you want to leave a couple of spaces and you can erase certain words and then afterwards you're going to read the text again and again and again and you're going to automatically fill in these notes or those at least what you want to do then strategy. Number 10 summarizing key information and explaining them to other people. This is already something that we talked about a little bit but before that it was all about judging how good you were and said you know I'm a 10. It's all about quantity it's all about practice. Try to go to as many people as possible and explain to them for as long as possible what you have to learn. So recite all the things that you have learned all the truths that you know about and try to just simply explain them in the most well terrific way you can and don't focus on their judgments but rather on talking to them. You want to focus on things through talking. So all right that was it. Now here follows for you. Thanks so much for watching and we'll see each other in the next one.
