Students learn and perceive knowledge in different ways. There are students who love reading books in quiet places like inside the library while there are some who enjoy learning while listening to audio recordings and class lectures
There are three classifications of learners: (1) the visual- they are the one who easily acquire information through the use of graphs, charts, maps, and diagrams, (2) the kinesthetic– such kind of learner perceives knowledge by carrying out physical activities rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations, (3) the auditory– this type of learner enjoys learning through listening. This learner depends on hearing and speaking as a primary way of learning.

There are also some who are not able to get knowledge through physical activities, but there are people who easily retain details from a discussion and can recite what his professor discussed just by listening.
