- For Teachers
As you all know, while talking we use this expression "if you don't mind" to request something politely. I want to know if there are any expressions that we can use instead of given one?

If you don't mind, shall I please call you later?
If you don't mind, can you please tell me what your purpose is of learning English?
My question was about if I can use another expressions instead ofcan 'If you don't mind'. Because I find it quite old fashioned. So if you have another suggestions for that, please give me some.
The second is not wrong, but doesn't sound very natural to me. I'd go for something like, "Would you mind telling me why you want to learn English?
