Use of learned and learnt
Please let me know when can we use learned and learnt in a sentence?
Suppose I wish to say that,
I learned to ride a bicycle. Can I also say,
I learnt to ride a bicycle.
Let me also be informed as to which one is the past form of the sentence
I am learning to ride a bicycle.
Learned and learnt are both the past tense of learn. Learnt is more common in British English.
This is called the present progressive tense.
I am learning to ride a bicycle
The past progressive tense:
I was learning to ride a bicycle.
