    Ok I'll try to explain it , but you have to wait because first I think how to explain it then i'll put my thoughts into English word. <<

    correction: I'll try to explain it, but you have to wait because I have to think about how to explain it and then I have to put my thoughts in English.

    or:.... and then I have to think about how to explain it in English.

    or: I'll try to explain it, but you'll have to wait. First, I have to think about how to explain it and then I have to think about how to explain it in English.

    One sentence is all right. It's possible some people would find two sentences to be preferable. However, leaving it as one sentence is fine also.

    I translated it in English. :)

    I would write it in English this way: It was he who taught me a word that made me his slave.

    He that teaches me a word makes me his slave.
