No matter what you may be whether it is a boss, a teacher, a student or just someone's friend, it is of use to know how to identify and adjust to everyone's different learning styles to be able to present new information in the manner that is the best for them.
There has been a system developed to help inform others about learning styles. VARK is the name of the system, which is an acronym for the four categories that they have used to break down their system, Visual, Aural, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic.
