    to be+verb

    Dear native speakers,

    In the following sentence which verb is correct after "is"? If all are correct, then is there a difference in meaning?

    "What one has to do in learning a second language is to learn/learn/learning the differences.

    Thanks.

    Both 'learn' and 'to learn' are possible. 'Learning' is not.
