The learning style is the manner in which a learner perceives, interacts with, and responds to the learning environment. Components of learning style are the cognitive, affective and physiological elements, all of which may be strongly influenced by a person's cultural background. A preference for learning in certain ways, eg through listening and conversation, or through formal explanation and written exercises. The way a person takes in, understands, expresses and remembers information; the way a person learns best. The channels- such as vision, hearing, movement, touching, or any combination of these-through which a person best understands and retains learning; also, temperament, as in an active or passive learning style or a reflective or impulsive. A preferential mode, through which a subject likes to master learning, solve problems, thinks or simply react in a pedagogical situation.
