    difference between learned and learnt

    Hi,

    which of the following is correct:

    a) I learned a lot from that article.

    b) I learnt a lot from that article.

    When do we use learned and when do we use learnt? Can you give examples?

    Thanks,
    NND

    There is no difference. They are alternatives spellings for the past and past participle of "learn". Learnt is more likely to be a BrE spelling than an AmE one.
