From Wikipedia: The word mathematics comes from the Greek μάθημα (máthēma), which, in the ancient Greek language, means "that which is learnt", "what one gets to know", hence also "study" and "science", and in modern Greek just "lesson".

So true!

Greek has different words for "learn" and "study", just like English: learn -> μαθαίνω, study -> μελετώ. Hence "Study Greek," would be "Μελέτα ελληνικά."
