aural




If you have excellent aural abilities, it means that your ears work well. Aural means “pertaining to hearing.”

Some people learn well using their aural skills, which means they can hear something and remember it easily later. The root of the word aural is the Latin word meaning “pertaining to the ear,” auris. It’s easy to get aural confused with another word that sounds similar, oral, which means “pertaining to the mouth.”
