Why is it sometimes lernanto and other times lernejano? Is there any difference between them?

    I don't know how duolingo makes the distinction, but:

    "lern|ant|o" is a person who is currently learning; "lern|ej|an|o" is a member of a school; so when I see English "pupil", that's more "lernejano" and "student" is more "lernanto" - but whichever fits the situation better

    Lernanto - one who is learning.

    Lernejano - someone enrolled in a K-12 or similar school.
