    Default Introducing a vague request for information

    Hi All
    Sometimes I start a sentence saying "Just for information...".
    Is this correct?

    I use also to begin a sentence with ""Maybe you can help me a bit...", but I would like to know something more about this specific way of introducing a sentence.

    Sometimes I also tend to use ""Just for my information..." or "For my information..."

    Example:
    "Just for information, do you know which book should we read at home for next week?"


    Thanks all
    mnstn

    Default Re: Introducing a vague request for information

    I have never heard or seen "just for my information" used.

    That phrase is usually used to give info to another person:

    Just for your information, use the back door when entering the building.

    Just for your information, they are no longer dating.

    Just so I'm clear, what is the assignment in math?
