¿"APROVECHO PARA DECIRTE" EN INGLÉS?

Nov 22, 2022

After reading a lot of emails in Spanish it is clear to me that the phrase "aprovecho para decirte" is commonly used as a way of adding something to your original email that is not exactly connected to the main issue:
Aprovecho para decirte que...
​So, how would you say this in an email in English?

Well, the first thing that probably comes to your mind is:

  • to take advantage of

Which technically is correct but it doesn't work very well in an email:

  • Taking advantage, I just wanted to ask you…

This approach is just a little too literal and relatively unnatural.

A better version would be:

  • Seeing as I am writing to you I just wanted to ask...
  • As a side note, I just wanted to ask you...
  • By the way, I just wanted to ask you…

Super useful one… in my humble opinion :)

I hope that helps!
