    learning disturbance

    I heard one person saying " all we learnt is only disturbance"

    actually the situation is that he is studying and some people there are shouting and disturbing him.

    this is not in film or any other forum. it happened in classroom.

    I think it is wrong because we cannot learn disturbance.

    is this sentence right?

    All we have done is getting disturbed.

    Re: learning disturbance


    You are right to say that it's impossible to learn disturbance, but your sentence doesn't quite make sense either. I think that using that construction (beginning with All we learned/did) is unhelpful, because you seem to be saying that you didn't learn or achieve anything. A suggestion:

    We learned/achieved nothing because of the disturbance in class.
