I would appreciate it if you learned the differences between camisoles and tank tops.

As shown, but yours is not a really bad mistake.


Generally, you need the past tense in an if-clause when it's combined with a clause with would.

IF past, ... WOULD .... / ... WOULD ... IF past.

Examples:

I said [I would stop by] [if he needed help].
[If they were caught,] [they would be punished].
[It would be nice] [if politicians told the truth].

In everyday English, it would go "I would appreciate it if you learned the …." The difference between things in this context normally uses the singular: "I would appreciate it if you learned the difference between a camisole and a tank top." "Differences" implies that he should learn the finer details of the two garments, like he is a fashion designer's apprentice.
