    Default teach/study knowledge

    A student studies knowledge at school.

    A teacher teaches his students knowledge.

    In terms of knowledge, are the aboved sentences naturally written? If not, what collocation will a native use concerning knowledge?

    Thanks!

    Jason

    No.
    These sentences are so tautologous that they are hardly worth writing.
    Students learn at school. - This is okay, but obvious.

    Of course teachers teach. They teach students. That's understood. It is not worth saying.

    Teachers pass their knowledge on to students. -- This is perhaps more appropriate.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    People have knowledge. They get that knowledge through study or by simply picking up information as they go through life.

    Teachers teach a specific subject.
    Students study a specific subject.
    The result is that both the teacher and the students have knowledge of that subject.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
