inquiry, study, or investigation; to receive instruction
concerning; to fix in the mind; to acquire understanding
of, or skill; as, to learn the way; to learn a lesson; to
learn dancing; to learn to skate; to learn the violin; to
learn the truth about something. "Learn to do well." --Is.
i. 17.

2. To communicate knowledge to; to teach. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

Hast thou not learned me how
To make perfumes ? --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Learn formerly had also the sense of teach, in
accordance with the analogy of the French and other
languages, and hence we find it with this sense in
Shakespeare, Spenser, and other old writers. This usage
has now passed away. To learn is to receive
instruction, and to teach is to give instruction. He
who is taught learns, not he who teaches.
[1913 Webster]

To acquire knowledge or skill; to make progress in acquiring
knowledge or skill; to receive information or instruction;
