Why we don't use " nous apprenons des mots de Pâques "? It can be translated as we learn some Easter words as I understand. Can you explain this to me please? Thank you!

I am sure the reason is that the translation has been based on "Easter words" being regarded as a general topic. However, this is ambiguous in English, especially when followed by a sub-list of words being learnt. It is readily interpreted as "some Easter words". In the construct I think «des mots» fits well too.
Merci beaucoup !
