Hi,
my dictionary says that "let's say" means "let's suppose", and "let's just say" means "Let's put it this way, this is what I have to say in brief".
I've always used "let's say" without "just", is it ok too or does it really make any difference? Example:

No, I'm not really an engineer. Well, let's (just) say I really like computers and technology in general, but that's not part of my job anyway.

I've always left "just" out when explaining something quickly and not in detail, it that ok? Thanks Emotion: smile

Just is important, it shows the person wants to resume/limit his explanation to only one aspect.

Ummm...
So if I say...
No, I'm not really an engineer. Let's say I really like computers and technology in general, but that's not part of my job anyway.
...then it's wrong, because "let's say" means "let's suppose" and in that sentence I'm not supposing anything?

You've got it.
I see, thanks.
But this sure is confusing... in the end "just" is usually something you can add or leave out everywhere... how strange.
