    learn

    Can I say this in English?
    1. The world/society will never learn whether it was/is true or not.
    2. The world/society will never learn the true story behind it.

    Yes, but don't use Society. Stick with The world.

    Re: learn

    If you include yourself in that, you can say "We will never learn the truth" or similar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: learn

    If you do want to use society, I think it's better without the definite article.
