Thread: Verb needed

    Default Verb needed

    Vocabulary question: Are experiences something you "get", "receive" ... "experience"? I'm trying to figure out what verb belongs here (in relation to a young person fresh out of high school):

    "She wants to get out and see the world and ___________ some valuable experiences before starting to concern herself with jobs and a career."

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Experience is something you 'gain'

    As it says 'experiences' I'd go with 'live'...

    I like to have experiences. At least I used to when I was younger.
