Ladies and Gentlemen:

We refer to the Registration Statement on Form S-1, File No. 333-254820, filed by Learn CW Investment Corporation, a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed with the SEC on May 13, 2021 and by Amendment No. 2 being filed with the SEC on the date hereof (as so amended, the “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement relates to the registration under the Securities Act of 23,000,000 units of the Company (including an aggregate of 3,000,000 units that may be sold by the Company pursuant to the exercise of the underwriter’s option to purchase units to cover overallotments under the Underwriting Agreement (as defined below)) (the “Units”), each Unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Ordinary Shares”) and one-half of one redeemable warrant (the “Warrants”). The Units are to be sold by the Company pursuant to an underwriting agreement among the Company and the Underwriter named therein, the form of which has been filed as Exhibit 1.1 to the Registration Statement (the “Underwriting Agreement”). This opinion letter is being delivered in accordance with the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act.

We have examined (i) the Registration Statement; (ii) the form of the Underwriting Agreement; (iii) the specimen Unit certificate that is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Registration Statement; (iv) the specimen Warrant Certificate that is filed as Exhibit 4.3 to the Registration Statement; and (v) the form of Warrant Agreement to be entered into between the Company and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent (“Warrant Agent”) (the “Warrant Agreement”), filed as Exhibit 4.4 to the Registration Statement. We have also examined originals, or copies of originals certified to our satisfaction, of such agreements, documents, certificates and statements of the Company and other corporate documents and instruments, and have examined such questions of law, as we have considered relevant and necessary as a basis for this opinion letter. We have assumed the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the genuineness of all signatures, the legal capacity of all persons and the conformity with the original documents of any copies thereof submitted to us for examination. As to facts relevant to the opinions expressed herein, we have relied without independent investigation or verification upon, and assumed the accuracy and completeness of certificates, letters and oral and written statements and representations of public officials and officers and other representatives of the Company.

Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that:

1.          The Units will constitute valid and binding obligations of the Company when: (i) the Registration Statement, as finally amended, shall have been declared effective under the Securities Act; (ii) the Company’s board of directors or a duly authorized committee thereof shall have duly adopted final resolutions authorizing the issuance and sale of the Units (and the Class A Shares and the Warrants comprising the Units) as contemplated by the Registration Statement; and (iii) the Units shall have been duly registered on the books of the transfer agent and registrar therefor in the name or on behalf of the purchasers thereof and have been issued by the Company against payment of the agreed consideration therefor in accordance with the terms of the Underwriting Agreement as executed and delivered by the parties thereto.

2.          The Warrants included in the Units will constitute valid and binding obligations of the Company when: (i) the Registration Statement, as finally amended, shall have been declared effective under the Securities Act; (ii) the Warrant Agreement shall have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Warrant Agent and duly executed and delivered by the Company; and (iii) the Units shall have been duly registered on the books of the transfer agent and registrar therefor in the name or on behalf of the purchasers thereof and have been issued by the Company against payment of the agreed consideration therefor in accordance with the terms of the Underwriting Agreement as executed and delivered by the parties thereto.
