I am trying to find a way to refer to acquiring the knowledge of something new or to be aware of something that recently happened.
Usually we can say,
I heard on the news...
I read on the news...
or even besides news,
I heard that your brother got a new job.
I read that they are builiding a new house in front of your work.
Didn't you hear what happened? There is this virus outbreak in China.
I am wondering whether is there a specific verb or expression I can use for this.
Sometimes I think I hear some people using to learn with this meaning, but I am uncertain whether it is correct.
I learnt you'll become a father.
Did you learn what is the team doing next year? They will play with a new jersey.
I learnt today they are planning to build a new airport in the city.
Is this correct? otherwise, is there any way to refer to this?
