I'm a Yank who uses "learned". As far as I know, our British cousins use "learnt" and pronounce it as it appears.
Well do we have an answer yet... Is it lessons learnt or lessons learned
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
This should answer your question:

What is the difference between learned and learnt?
These are alternative forms of the past tense and past participle of the verb learn. Learnt is more common in British English, and learned in American English. There are a number of verbs of this type (burn, dream, kneel, lean, leap, spell, spill, spoil etc.). They are all irregular verbs, and this is a part of their irregularity

...I'll be using learnt from now on (The idea of writing spoilled or burned annoys me)

"Spoilled" would annoy me as well. Emotion: smile
It's either spoiled or spoilt.
lol failled!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
In British English, both forms are correct.
AnonymousIn British English, both forms are correct.- This isn't true!!
As a ESOL teacher in Britain, I don't object to students using American spellings and grammar providing they are aware that they are using them and using them for everything. Learned is incorrect in BrE. (In fact the first time I saw it on this site, I contacted a Native American Speaker to check it was correct).

Philip is correct.
Is Philip correct or correced?
