    Hello!!!

    Can anyone explain to me the difference between 'start off' and 'start out'? I have looked up their meanings and the difference between the two is still unclear to me.


    thanks so much in advance

    They're very similar. Do you have a specific example?

    For example:

    Let's start out by introducing ourselves

    or

    Let's start off by introducing ourselves



    Also this example,


    How did the character of Carrie started out?

    or

    How did the character of Carrie started off?

    Hi Madrid 007 :)
    As there is no reference to Spanish in your query, why not address the question to the English only forum?
