STUDY AND LEARN

The difference between study and learn

In my English class, one of my students of IA of International Business Management or  we usually say it Indonesia Managemen Bisnis Internasional (MBI), asked me the difference between the word ‘study’ and ‘learn’. For the time being, since he is in the first semester, I just told him that you needn’t differ them. If you would like to know more, you can ask mister google.

DERIVATIVES

learnability |ˌlərnəˈbilətē|noun,

learnable adjective

ORIGIN Old English leornian ‘learn’ (in Middle English also ‘teach’), of West Germanic origin; related to German lernen, also to lore1.

usage: In modern standard English, it is wrong to use learn to mean teach, as in that’ll learn you (correct use is that’ll teach you). This meaning has been recorded since the 13th century and has been used by writers such as Spenser, Bunyan, and Samuel Johnson, but it fell into disfavor in the early 19th century and is now found only in nonstandard and dialect use.
