Why "que"? I thought aprender was sufficient. With que you are saying "I have to to learn" no?

The expression of obligation in Spanish is tener que + Infinitivo. For instance "Tengo que trabajar" = "I have to work", "Tienes que comer menos" = "You have to eat less" or "No tiene que hablar tanto" = "He/She doesn't have to speak that much"
