I asked a similair question already, but wasn't satisfied with the answers, mostly due to my poor wording.
I want a word that means to learn. Not "to study" "to memorize" "to be taught/ learn from a teacher". A word that basically means "to absorb information" from, work, life, nature, etc.
From research I feel like its either 覚える (both memorize/learn) or 修学する but I have rarely heard the latter used, so I would be inclined to use 覚える。
What is the word I am looking for?
