    Experience, experiences

    Hi teacher,
    is possible to use word experiences? In what case?
    I have seen it written so many times that now I don't know whether it's correct or not.

    Thank you.

    It's a count noun, yes; An event or a series of events participated in or lived through.

    ...she gave an account of her experiences with Ratcliffe.

    Three seniors share their experiences of falling.

    There's a difference in meaning here,
    The staff talked about their experience (i.e., their expertise).

    Is it used in both American and British English?
