Bonjour,

J'aimerais bien qu'un locuteur natif puisse m'indiquer quelle est la meilleure traduction de cette phrase anglaise: "I will learn something new" (et ici "new" veut dire "new (to me)"):

"J'apprendrai quelque chose de nouveau."
ou
"J'apprendrai quelque chose de neuf."

Merci beaucoup !

nouveau

neuf means new as in never used, never presented, new to the market, and usually applies to objects or products.

Apprendre qqchose de neuf could possibly imply that you are learning something that has just come to be known, but frankly the association between qqchose and neuf feels a bit odd to me.

There's always the more colourful expression "je me coucherai moins bête".
