Learning is the process of acquiring new information, assimilating information to develop knowledge, assimilating information to modify existing knowledge, developing behaviors, developing skills, developing values, developing efficiency, and/or developing preferences. The ability to learn is possessed by humans, animals, and some machines; there is also evidence for some kind of learning in certain plants. Some learning is immediate, induced by a single event (e.g. being burned by a hot stove), but much skill and knowledge accumulates from repeated experiences. The changes induced by learning often last a lifetime, and it is hard to distinguish learned material that seems to be “lost” from that which cannot be retrieved.

Repetition is the mother of all learning (repetitio est mater studiorum)

— ancient origin

Practice makes perfect.
