    Default Introducing new sentence with for

    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Hello,

    I would like to know if introducing a new sentence with For is something that is used in English.

    For example consider the following sentence:



    "For the class of 10.06 I will have to study the following chapters"


    Would you consider this sentence introduction as ok?


    I would like to thank you in advance for your help.


    Best Regards
    Alex.

    Yes, it's perfectly possible to use "For" as the first word in a sentence:

    For lunch tomorrow, I'm going to have vegetable soup.
    For my class next week, I have to write a presentation about art.

    You also gave another perfect example, by starting one of your sentences with "For example..."!!!
