I have varying learning styles depending on the subject matter. For physical activities I prefer one-on-one hands on. For academic subject, history, geography, physics I prefer to read books.
When studying screenwriting I received many benefits from reading books and online sites, but lectures I attended rocked it because the speakers spoke about their up front experience shared their experiences and wisdom.
Overall, I'd say I'm a one-on-one, definitely hands on, do it, learn it kinda gal. I LOVE learning and so long as I'm learning something, I'll take it in any format.
