John learned/studied English before he went to America.

Which makes more sense to you in the above context, learned or studied? Thanks.

Either is fine, but "learned" would say he arrived in America able to use the language, while "studied" just tells you that he was trying to learn it.

Thanks, Feebs, for your consideration.
