It is hard for me to understand the meaning of the expression "saying that". If it is at the beginning of the sentence, how is it right to explain? Where is it appropriate to use and what construction to write?
Here's an example, from a list of tips about how to improve English:
- Plan to take a test. You’ll find that you work harder when you need to study for something.
- Saying that, it’s better not to study just to take a test. Think of the bigger picture. What can you do when you have a good command of English? How will the quality of your life improve?
