Difference Between Learn and Study

The two words learn and study are two verbs -used in the English language that are very confusing ad people often think that they have the same meaning. However they are different and words, their uses are also different.

The meaning of the word ‘learn’ is to gain absolute knowledge about a particular subject. As for example “I am learning to play baseball” It means that I am on my way of gaining expertise on baseball. The word ‘study’ is generally not used in such cases.

However the verb ‘study’ imparts a vibe of exam preparation. As for example “Sarah studied hard for her grades” The word ‘learn’ means the gathering of some knowledge or mastering any skill by experience. It indicates the gradual development of any particular ability.
