To study — to learn
They are rather close synonyms. In a general sense they both mean “to get knowledge”, to acquire information.
To study is used mainly when we mean the process itself; it is used in a wider and more general sense than «to learn».
To learn may have an additional shade of meaning, namely, “to master something”.
e. g. I studied the rules for reading but I haven't learnt them yet.
It means: «I have worked on these rules, but the result is not yet satisfactory, I must study more before I can learn them».
So «to learn», as a rule, means the result of the process of studying.
To learn may also means “to make progress”. E. g. the child learns quickly.
To study may have an additional shade of meaning, namely, «to investigate, to examine closely”. E. g. He studied her face very carefully in the hope that it would tell him her thoughts.
Most English schools use «headmasters» or «head» instead of “director” or “principal”. 8. Some of the students receive the cards:
