    Default sentence check

    what is wrong with this sentence?

    After my first year at Nova, I have earned a place on the ILSA Journal of International & Comparative Law.

    Could someone please help me?
    is this sentence using the word artifical correctly?

    The show was very magical, but I felt that it was a tad artificial.

    Mieka, it's fine- as a British speaker, I like your use of 'tad'. By the way, if you want to ask a question, it's better to start a new thread because then people know that there is a question to be answered. If you tag a question on at the end of an existing thread, it might look like a question that has been answered and not be read. If I see a question I haven't readwith three posts, I might not open it because it looks like question/answer/thanks or response, whereas if we see a thread with no answers, people are almost certain to open it.
