Er, how can you learn professions?

Actually, a girl taking the Duolingo skill "Professions" would do just that.

I've never heard "learn a profession" used in English, so I Googled it. The vast majority of hits were gaming related (I guess you learn a profession in WoW to get points or something). I did however come across some non-gaming uses. An apprentice learns a profession. I've never heard it or seen it before, but it seems to work in certain contexts.

Learn a profession is used in english, but I've never heard of one person learning professions. It would be much more common to say "The girl is learning two professions"

In World of Warcraft you can learn up to two different professions ;)

I think is related to technical job-oriented courses common in Germany
