    do/learn my lessons at home

    I didn't go to school but did/learned my lessons by myself at home.

    Are both 'did my lessons' and 'learned my lessons' good English in this context?

    They're OK but it, would look/sound better with "I" before "did/learned".

    Thank you so much, bill. And could I ask you another question with the word lesson:
    Are both give and teach fine with the noun lesson in 'Miss Brown will give/teach this lesson'?
