To "learn" vs. to "study"

How do you say "Chinese is a difficult language to learn". It is easy to study Chinese (just take a course), but difficult to learn it.

I remember that in Hebrew, ללמוד can mean both "to learn" and "to study", but is there a way to distinguish between the two concepts.

    סינית קשֶה ללמוד
    ללמוד סינית זה לא פשוט

    In these phrases ללמוד will be understood as "to learn", just because Chinese is known to be a difficult language and the concept of taking a course would be expressed differently

    Or even simpler
    סינית היא שפה קשָה
