Really? Emotion: surprise
Thank you! I thought people over there were asking about grammar and discussing linguistics, semantic precision and subtleties of the English language! Emotion: smile
(Which gives away the fact that I never chatted there, haha)
I need help with punctuation in a sentence.

It is an ideal accompaniment to seafood, in general, and shellfish, in particular.

Are those commas correct around "in general" and before "in particular"?

They are not wrong, but I wouldn't use them. I wouldn't naturally pause there.
With a longer sentence I'd consider pausing.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

I need someone to check this sentence for me and see if it makes sense.
"It's hard to move on. But, it must happen just as the seasons do."
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
