Vocabulary notes (text only) explain key vocabulary and phrases from the interview.

kinesthetic

image

I guess maybe I'm a kinesthetic learner.

Something 'kinesthetic' involves movement, so a kinesthetic learner learns through movement. Notice the following:

  1. This museum uses a kinesthetic approach to teaching kids about science.
  2. The class involves a lot of kinesthetics.

whereas

image

I learned how to do everything for web design just by moving the mouse, whereas reading from a book, I just couldn't learn it that way.

You can use 'whereas' to introduce a second topic that is opposite the first topic. Notice the following:

  1. My father is very tall, whereas my mother is short.
  2. Here is too hot, whereas where I'm from is too cold.

auditory learner

image

I guess I would be an oral learner or an auditory learner.

An 'auditory learner' would be a person who learns through listening. Notice the following:

  1. He is an amazing auditory listener, and he remembers everything.
  2. I have never been a very good auditory listener.

visual input

image

I need a visual input to remember things.

'Visual input' are things that you can see. They are visual images that your brain can process. Notice the following:

  1. It's important to write important concepts on the board to give students a visual input during class.
  2. We would like to have more visual input during the presentation to keep people interested.

stores

image

I need a visual input for it to go into the part of my brain where it stores.

Here, where something is 'stored' is where it is saved. Notice the following:

  1. Here is where we store all the extra cleaning supplies.
  2. Where do you store your empty suitcases?
