learn about VS. learn
learn the difference between the tenses VS. learn about the difference between the tenses.
Come to think of it, "learn the difference between the tenses" is a more natural way of writing. What do you experts think?
Thank you in advance.
Both are perfectly OK. You can use 'learn' in a transitive manner (+ direct object), or you can use the transitive prepositional verb 'learn about' (+ direct object). I don't even detect a semantic modification. I suppose it depends entirely on personal style.
