I think inherent differences between Germanic and Slavic languages make such straighforward translations impossible.

I think LUCA's answer is acceptable.

No, "ти навчИвся" means result of an action. It corresponds to Perfect time. The process of learning in the past may be expressed as "чого ти вчився/навчАвся?"

By the way "ЧЕМУ" in Liçá's phrase is incorrect. It looks like taken from another language, most likely from Russian. In contemporary Ukrainian it should be "ЧОГО ти навчився".
