    versatile experiences/experience

    Hi, teachers,

    Are both 'versatile experiences' and 'versatile experience' proper English phrases?
    My friend told me only the latter is correct. Is that right?

    Thank you very much.

    I think you need to give us some context here. At the moment, I can't think of a suitable example for either.

    Re: versatile experiences/experience

    I agree. I can't think of how an experience can be versatile. Are you sure you've chosen the correct word?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Experience cannot be versatile.
    Varied experience makes a person versatile.

    not a teacher
