☆   point out  指し示す


There are two ways to use this word. Firstly, if you point out something, you make people look at that thing, or show them where it is. For example:
We drove through my old neighborhood so I could point out where I grew up.
While on vacation, my friend kept pointing out things I should photograph.

The second way is to point out a mistake or a fact. This means that you want to tell someone or draw their attention to that mistake or fact.
Luckily, he pointed out that my calculations were wrong, before I submitted the report.
Before we start, I want to point out that this information is based on my personal experience.

Can you use “point out” in a sentence in either of these ways?
