Greetings dear DP,

When i got so far as the piece which i have quoted, i immediately thought
that the 'task verb' in this case is "learn". Thank you for giving me
another position to look at learning. It is primarily a task which
ultimately ends with an achievement. This is exactly what the concept of a
learning curve tells us.

With care and best wishes
