Hi,

Are the following two sentences equivalent? Also is the correct one natural in a conversation?

1. I don’t want to come out as giving excuses to avoid work

2. I don’t want to come out as one giving excuses to avoid work.

Thanks,

MG.

I am not familiar with 'come out' used this way. I suggest 'come across'.
Thanks MM.

So if I change 'come out' to 'come across', will either of them be fine?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
For me, yes. I wouldn't be surprised if a Brit or someone came along and said that your originals were OK, though.
I was more interested in finding out about the underlined parts, especially the use of 'one'.
Both OK by me.
