What's Your Learning Style?

Have you ever wondered why you do better in some classes than others? It may depend on your individual learning style. Your learning style influences the way you understand information and solve problems.

There are three primary learning styles:

  • Visual

  • Auditory

  • Tactile

Many people use a combination of learning styles, whereas others learn best by using just one.

Body and Mind

There are various ways to learn and the Library can help with most of them. 

There are student computers available to you, with some really good tools.

Books, of course! The Librarian is especially proud of the Sciences Section, where you can find good reads about the natural sciences and social sciences. 

The Library can help you with getting support and books in your mother tongue. Just let the Librarian know what you need.

Your Librarian is a very curious person and if there is something you need help to find out, help is happily given.

If reading is not your strongest skill, the Library can provide you with creating an account at Legimus, where you can listen to a book as you read it. 

    Good Study

    Habits

  • Study every day (and do your homework)

  • Create a quiet place at home to study.

  • Turn off the phone, TV, and other devices that may disturb you when studying.

  • Listen to soft music or other white noise.

  • Study in a way that suits your learning style.

  • Take regular breaks, like 5 minutes every half hour.

  • Study early (don't wait until the last minute).

  • Study the hardest things first and then move on to easier ones. 

  • Spend the most time on things that you find most difficult.

  • Ask for help if you are struggling with something. You can now book 20 minutes with the Librarian.

  • Take notes as you study, using your own words to simplify complex concepts.

  • Organise your notes in a notebook or folder. 

  • Look at your notes on a regular basis.

  • Make connections between the topics you are studying and the topics you have already mastered. Everything is connected.

  • Take practice tests, so you don't panic when it's time for the real test. There are quizzes on most topics in the Library-

  • Keep track of your study progress using an online program or notebook.

  • Give yourself a pat on the back after a good study session.

  • Quiz yourself about what you just studied.

    Brain food 

 

  • Avocados: Avocados contain the good kind of fat which the brain needs to process information.

  • Beets: Beetroots contain inflammation reducing antioxidants and also natural nitrates to boost the blood flow to the brain. Brilliant before a test! 

  • Blueberries: Blueberries do not only give you lots of healthy exercise while picking them, but also vitamins C and K and plenty of fibre.

  • Bone broth: The ultimate healing soup for your stomach and brain.

  • Broccoli: We all secretly love it, really. Our bodies and our brains do, anyway.

  • Celery: Rich in flavour and vitamins with hardly any calories, this is a winner for your brain!

  • Chocolate: Dark chocolate is better for you than milk chocolate, and it is very flavoursome. It also increases the blood flow to your heart and to your brain. 

Reading poetry is not only fun, but it is a brilliant exercise for your brain. Reading poetry increases your reading comprehension, your language skills and your level of well being.
