Can I use the transitional words "First and foremost... Additionally... Last but (certainly) not least ..." to explain a topic?

Thank you!

I love English. First and formost, English is very important. Additionally, I can travel around the word if I can speak English. Last but certainly not least, mastering English can help me make more foreign friends.

That paragraph seems a bit overloaded to me, but the idea of using them is OK in this sort of writing.

You misspelt "foremost" in post #3.
