Are the commas in this sentence correctly placed?

Why or why not?

"In Spanish, when there is an exclamatory or an interrogative sentence, there should always be an inverted exclamation or interrogation mark at the beginning."

What other mistakes are there?

    All correct.

    In Spanish, -- introductory phrase out of usual word order -- correct.

    sentence, - ends the dependent clause -- correct.

    no comma needed after exclamation since there are only two choices.

    They are, but your sentence is unnecessarily wordy. It would sound better to say:

    "In Spanish, every exclamatory or interrogatory sentence should begin with an inverted exclamation point or question mark, respectively."
