    Re: Check The punctuation plz

    Introductory elemets and subordinate clauses are usually off-set with a comma if they begin a sentence:

    When we arrived at the picnic spot, we got out of the car and unpacked the food from the boot.

    After we ate, we played a game of football but my team lost.

    Then, we went home. <colloquial English>

    Note, does which need a comma?
