learned = learnt. therefore, "you learned to read" should be acceptable. Please account for this style of (american?) english

I think "learnt", "spelt", "smelt", "earnt", "burnt", "dreamt" etc. are less common in America generally and more common in Commonwealth countries, judging by the number of Americans online who "correct" things that I write with things like "It's spelled 'learned'." Like, sorry mate, where I'm from, it's also spelt learnt.

That would be ulijifundisha ... and probably with mwenyewe in the sentence to make it clear.
