Best Learning Methods- Reading, Listening or Practice

What is the best learning method according to you? Is it reading, listening or doing things? I think we learn most efficiently with practical knowledge. We learn well when we participate or do things.


There are different approaches to learning. People learn in different ways. Some people like to learn by doing things. Other people learn well by reading various books. Some others learn by listening. Which of these methods are best for learning? The effectiveness differs from one person to the other.

In each case, the purpose is to transfer information or imbibe information. However, each method transfers information in various different ways. I feel that learning by practically doing things is the best way. When we actively participate in an activity, we retain the information well. For example, we may read about playing a musical instrument but we do not master it until we play the instrument.

Learning by practice or doing things helps to gain experience personally. Reading and listening seem to be passive forms of learning compared to practical learning. You can learn by listening to lectures or read books to gain knowledge. You may read or listen to learn new language but you become expert once you talk and practice.

Hence, I cannot imagine a better form of learning than practical learning. When we see and do things, we learn faster. It is easy to remember complicated recipes once you cook them.

When you read, you may need to do tremendous research to learn a topic. At times, you may come across difficult words. Thus, it may seem frustrating and slow, especially when there is a lot of research.

Listening to interesting news, debates, lectures, discussions or documentaries can be an easy way to learn. Moreover, in live sessions, you can interact and ask questions. Interactive way of learning is a good way to imbibe information. On the other hand, if the listener becomes bored, he or she may feel sleepy and thus, miss out on the lecture. Hence, I advocate doing things and learning with practical methods. When we do stuff, we remain alert and pay more attention.

Gaining knowledge is by listening is very good share our knowledge with others and get the knowledge from them. It will create both listeners and speakers knowledge high. Most of the peoples likes to hear about world records and wonders of the world. It is a very good habit to learn things from others. Usually teachers share there knowledge with us and when we ask our doubts both the teacher and student is increasing there knowledge. Use your knowledge vex brilliantly.
