Question About 'if you will' 'Urban Dictionary' says that 'if you will' : A phrase overused by those trying to sound sophisticated and/or intelligent. I'm not really good at English yet So if I use 'if you will', does it sound bad?

Most of the definitions on urban dictionary are just jokes, or guys trying to show off to their friends. There are very few useful definitions on that site. I agree wth Michael's advice. You'll do better by working on your regular English instead of trying to copy expressions from a joke site.

It would be a waste of your time to try to learn this phrase. It's also not used very often, "let's say" is common alternative. Perhaps you could come back to it once you have reached a near-native or C2 level.
