    to learn x know

    Dear friends...

    Could you shed some light on this?

    What's the difference?

    How did you learn about Mrs Peterson's death?
    How did you know about Mrs Peterson's death?

    Thank you.

    They both mean "in what manner did you come to know about the death of Mrs. Peterson."
