    Teach or Teaching, Direct or Directly

    Dear Teachers,
    I am confused between these two sentences:

    1.I learnt what it really means teaching English to the children in villages
    2.I learnt what it really means to teach English to the children in villages


    1.I got my knowledge direct from Germany
    2.I got my knowledge directly from Germany

    Perhaps the second sentence in itself is wrong but I would still like to know the correct one of the two.
