Help for translating: "On Mondays, I will go there. We learn then."

If you can translate this, please comment below : ) The main part is that I don't know which word to use for "then", as in "that day (on Mondays), as opposed to any other days".

That seems like a really awkwardly worded English sentence, but the French translation would be « Le lundi j’y irai . Nous apprenons alors. »

yyyyyyyes, I thought for some reason that the sentence was "They learn then". No idea why. Fixed. Thank you for pointing that out.

I would be temtped to rephrase it as "nous apprendrons" since it seems like the sentence is implying that we will learn on monday.

Yes the wording is a bit unused in English but it most definitely is correct. There refers to a place, and then refers to a time.
