A key goal is learning to read a matrix.
Why is present continuous used here? As I understand goal is a final state. So learning is the process, to achieve something, not the goal itself. So this sentence should be like:
A key goal is to be learnt how to read matrices.
So actual goal is to know how to read them, not learning it. Is this correct?
EDIT: I'm trying to understand, is the goal is the process of learning or the goal is the final state after you've learned, i.e. the goal is to know how to read, which is acquired by learning.
