INTRODUCTION

The education is very important in all the country so is necessary to know the preferences or learning style to improve the learning process thought favorite style of learning. One important characteristic of this questionnaire is that give the opportunity choose more than one option giving a better information about the learning style that person has. Vark is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their learning preferences. These preferences are about the ways that they want to take in and give out information (V= visual, A=aural, R=reading/write, K=Kinaesthetic).

The VARK Questionnaire Results Your scores were: Visual: 7 Aural: 10 Read/Write: 5 Kinesthetic: 5 You have a mild aural learning preference.

The mild Aural style of learning means, that I learn best from lectures, group discussion, speaking, tapes or talking to other student. It includes talking out loud as well as talking to your-self. Who are mild in their aural preferences are a small group. One of the preferences that we have is for information that is heard or spoken. Also, often people with this preference want to sort things out by speaking, rather transporting things out and then speaking. According to my score, AURAL category is the highest and VISUAL category is the lowest which means that I need to apply more strategies from those and the other style I have mild aural style, and I like to work with sound and music. I have a good sense of pitch and rhythm. I always can sing, play a musical instrument, or identify the sounds of different instruments. I notice the music playing in the background of movies, TV shows and other media.
