To study versus To learn

Hi, everybody.

I need your help. I don’t understand the difference between the expressions

I am learning English
I am studying English

thanks in advance

Dear Cowboy,

‘I am studying English’ implies that you might be a student at university studying English as a major that can cover various subjects such as linguistics, phonology, the history of the English language and culture, English literature etc.

‘I am learning English’ implies that you are doing English language exercises or that you are attending an English language course.[YSaerTTEW443543]

Dear Torsten, thank you very much. Your explanation helped me. Now I know, I am learning English only, but I am not studing it.
cowboy :lol:

Or you can study without learning, i.e. if you have no interest in the subject, if you get disctracted or pay little or no attention during class (spring is not the best season for those who are prone to distraction!).

Mind you, you can also learn without studying. As Torsten said too:

Isn’t it amazing what our mind is capable of achieving behind our back, so to speak?
