There's no 'Earnt' word in the English Dictionary.

Learned/Learnt is an exception! Do not mix words up like that!

You should memorise the entire list of irregular verb.

Irregular verbs are verbs in which their past tense and past participle aint merely adding an '-ed' behind. If I am not wrong, there are only 180 irregular verbs. Memorise them and they'll stick to you for life.
