“My mother taught me to play the piano.” 「母にピアノを教わった」

“Can you teach me how to say hello in Hawaiian?” 「ハワイ語での挨拶を教えてくれる?」


“Teaching” is giving someone a new skill. It can be something big that takes a long time to learn, or something small like just one new word. But if it’s only a piece of information, we use “tell” instead: “Fred told me you would be here.”
