comment Difference between Erfahrung and Erlebnis?
@Em1 Maybe this is indeed not the best example. (it's just the first one that came up). But my point here is that "etwas erfahren" also can mean that you have experienced something, learned from it and that you are able to use this experience next time when a similar situation occurs. While "erleben" just means that you experienced something (you were there when something occured/ happened) but it does not necessary mean that you learned something usefull from it.

Yes, when you just want to say that you have learned something ,it would be better to use the "i have learned" construction. But when you're in a group for example and somebody asks "Who has experience with using chop sticks?", it will mean something like "Who knows how to use them and has done it before?"

Danke! Du hast recht , dass mit dem zählen und rechnen ist auch leicht zu finden aber ich war mich da nicht sicher ob das umgangsprächlich auch so verwendet wird oder dass es bessere Alternativen gibt.
