    Can I say these in English?
    In view of the context this might be impossible.

    Yes. I like using commas to show dependent clauses - that is, phrases that add information to core sentences but don' t change their meanings.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
