What does it mean exactly the phrase: μαθαίνω Ελληνικά

I know it means "I earn Greek".  Does it also mean "I teach Greek"?  If so, then how can I tell the difference?

Two different words!

μαΘαίνω = I learn but διδάσκω =  I teach.

δάσκαλος is a teacher

"μαθαίνω" basically means "I learn"

"μαθαίνω κάτι σε κάποιον" means "I teach something to someone".

Examples:

Μαθαίνω να οδηγώ, για να πάρω δίπλωμα οδήγησης. = I am learning to drive, to get my driver's license.

Ο πατέρας μου μου έμαθε να οδηγώ. = My father taught me how to drive.
