    Ask How did you learn English?

    I probably wouldn't use that. I might say:
    How did you learn English?
    or
    Did you learn English by yourself?

    I would say 'How do you learn English?' if the listener is still learning it.

    Without more context, I'd understand that to mean "What is a good way to learn English?" That is, I'd hear you as the unspecific pronoun. If the listener is still learning, I'd ask How are you learning English? or, more likely, How are you studying​ English?

    I think the context could be 'You speak fluent/broken English. How do you learn English?'.

    The second sentence is a non sequitur. It sounds like you're posing a general question, ​What's a good way to learn English? If you want to know what technique your interlocutor uses, put the question in the present continuous.
