Question about sentence

In the sentence: Anne et Alain apprendront la cuisine le mois prochain, I’m confused why it’s la cuisine and not à cuisiner since the translation was: will learn how to cook. Can someone explain this? Thanks.

Hi Liz,

Having checked with others you could say -

Apprendrons la cuisine, les mathématiques, les tables de multiplication (discipline)

Apprendrons à cuisiner, à nager, à jouer de la clarinette 

Apprendrons à faire la cuisine, la peinture, le ménage 

The quiz was testing 'apprendre'.

Hope this helps!
