Learnt or Learned

Bây giờ mỗi khi cần tra cứu từ vựng tiếng Anh, mình thường dùng từ điển trực tuyến :

+ TheFreeDictionary (VD: http://tfd.com/learn )

+ Translate.google.com (VD: https://translate.google.com/?tl=vi&text=learn )

Trường hợp phức tạp hơn, như learned và learnt sự khác biệt, thì tham khảo từ Mrs. Google:

Quora: https://www.quora.com/Which-is-correct-Learned-or-Learnt

(similar: burnt/burned , program/programme )


My Recap: both are used in many regions, especially in speaking. We can use the one we like/prefer, as long as consistent, no need to explicitly tell one is “wrong” or the other is “right”. The most “critical” debatable is probably some grammar test in which the most relevant information is that word.

Nevertheless in practical usage the “actual” information is usually something else than the “correct” suffix of the tense.
