    Smile to make out you know everything

    It's not a good learning atitude to make out you know everything.
    It's not a good learning habit to pretend you know everything.




    Do both of the above read as well? If not, how would you correct them? Thanks.

    In my opinion, the second sentence is correct.

    Make out means:
    to realize : I can`t make out what he is saying
    to establish; prove.
    to decipher; discern.
    to imply, suggest, or impute: He made me out to be a liar.
    to manage; succeed: How are you making out in your new job?

    There may be other opinions on that, though.
