Hi,

Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

1. Can I request you to keep the info to yourself? ( I wanted the person to keep the info confedential)

2. I will let you know when I leave here.


3. Do you think I will be able to make it to the dinner?


Thanks,
MG

Can I ask you to keep the info to yourself?
Can I request that you keep the info to yourself?

I will let you know when I leave. (If you are speaking from the same place you are referring to leaving later, then "here" is unnecessary.)

3. Do you think I will be able to make it to the dinner?
That's fine as long as someone as has more idea whether you will make it to the dinner than you do.

Thanks,
MG
