Gerunds follow prepositions. The -ing form of a verb always follows "about". "My expectations about learn" is broken English.

Learn is a verb and the sentence required a noun. The ing form is a verbal noun or gerund. Do not mix up the gerund with the ing form of the present participle. You are learning English.
