ABSTRACT
The article discusses the nature of learning styles. Learning styles pertains to the concept that individuals differ on how they learn depending as to what mode of instruction they find most effective for them. It is divided into theoretical, pedagogical and commercial activities in which there is an interaction between learning method and the type of learners. Despite that individuals have differences in preferences and styles, they learn through interaction with meaning and prior knowledge and background
