What is the participle of the word "learn"?

a. learnt

b. learned

Why do you find it different in the study materials? Would it be a difference from the British to the USA?

    They are both used as the past participle and past tense of the verb to learn. Learned is the generally accepted way of spelling it in the United States and Canada, while the rest of the English-speaking world seems to prefer learnt .
