Answer #1
"little" is an adverb. VERY is an adverb that modifies little, so in the end, very is an adverb that modifies the adverb little.

Answer #2
Here's my reasoning.

The word, "little," is a noun because it is the direct object of the verb, "will learn." It tells WHAT you will learn.

Similar constructions:

you will learn a little
you will learn nothing

It seems to me that VERY is an adjective, modifying the noun, little.
