Hello! I wonder if this collocation is correct: learn information. For example, learn the information from your notebooks. Thank you in advance!
Thank you very much! And if there's some information in my notebook, what can I do with it? Study?It's not quite right. As a collocation, we get or look up or find information. It is there (somewhere), and we go and get it or look at it or read it. It doesn't quite collocate with processes like learn or study, which are more active ways of thinking - we learn facts, or learn lists of names, or learn how to do something.
Now it's clear! Thanks a lot for your response!"Study". In English, the intentional action (the thing you decide to do) is "study".
"Learn" is the hoped-for result of studying. If you know something you didn't know before, you have "learned" it. So "learn information" means moving information from "not known" to "known".
How do you do that? You study (classes, memorization, reading, etc.).
If you re-read (and think about) your notes in a notebook, before an exam, we call that:
- (in AE) reviewing your notes before the exam
- (in BE) revising your notes before the exam
