I'm puzzled about how both 教 and 学习 both appear in the same sentence.
sb. 正在教 sb. 学习 sth.
In English, it would translate to e.g. "father is teaching his child to learn to swim", which is a weird phrasing (it's meta---"if you want to learn swimming, you need to do A, B, and C"); it'd usually be "father is teaching his child to swim" (and "the child is learning to swim"). I think the same applies in Chinese.
Question: Is it just me, or is 教……学习 in 爸爸正在教他的孩子学习游泳 weird?
This is a sentence with two objects (他的孩子, and 学习游泳), so we can construct other examples:
It seems like the sentences will always be better if we delete 学习.
