    While you wake up...

    Please check.

    While you wake up I'll have learnt all lessons.

    Is this tense correct?

    Re: While you wake up...

    No. I'm not quite sure what you mean. Here are some possibilities:

    By the time you wake up, I'll have done/completed all the lessons.
    By the time you wake up, I'll have learnt everything from the lessons.

    If the person you're talking to takes a long time to wake up each morning, you could say "While you wake up, I'll study" or something similar. Or "In the time it takes you to wake up, I could learn everything contained in these lessons".

    It also partly depends on what you mean by "all lessons". Do both parties know what lessons you're talking about?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: While you wake up...

    In "all lessons" I mean school subjects. And in "wake up" I didn't mean that he or she needs much time to wake up, so I have to use "by the time..."

    I've not known the differences between "by the time you wake up" and "while you wake up" until now. Thank you to explain it for me.
