You can learn through school yada yada.
But I think you learn the most through living. You learn from your experiences in order to keep living.

Everywhere! Our senses pick up signals of all sorts everyday and our brains process all that information. So it is more of a matter of what you are aware of that you know.

Everything that is knowledge is gained through experience and personal thesis. If you just read it, it's hearsay. If you believ it, then it's faith. Personally I have no way of knowing if the atom truly exists, and if I can not even grab the concept and understand it, then I am putting belief in other people's intelligence as well as the theory itself. Most things we learn are really the concept of believing in what other people have done and think. I have read a lot of history, but my belief in it stems from other people's research, not own experience. What is defined as knowledge is usually other people's propaganda. It works because we believe that if some expert says something incorrect other experts will challenge it AND, and here is the problem, we will actually hear about it, and that it will be stricken "from the record". In most cases, like statistics, we will ususally only hear it once, even if it is rebuked, it will be done so in academic circles, and it may not reach the press, or we may not hear the objections, because in the first case it was a sensational fact, in the other case it was boring and undramatic. Which is why people have a massive amount of strange statistics to draw from. Real year-long studies done by objective researchers are usually more boring than sudden increases in something and the like.
