    Hi radiolibre!

    In my opinion, both "sobre" and "acerca de" are correct after the verb "aprender".

    Actually, if you look up "sobre" in La Rae, the second meaning they provide is "acerca de", so they can be synonyms.

    Having said this, I suppose the choice of one or the other is probably a regional thing. I dare say though that - at least in Spain - "aprender sobre algo" is much more common.

    Let's wait for some more opinions!
