    Question Came to know

    Hi,

    Is this sentence correct?

    Today I came to know that you dont drink tea.

    The usage of "came to know" is correct or incorrect and why?

    Thanks

    Today, I came to know that you don't drink tea.
    This is correct, I think it's better with the comma.

    Is "came to know" used in British English?

    Yes, it's used but "found out" is probably more common.

    Sp there is nothing grammatically wrong with "came to know" in British or American English?

    There is nothing wrong with it in BrE, you would have to ask an American about AmE.
