    Word order

    Do you find the place of the word "today" correct: "In addition, Serzh Sargsyan today visited the Embassyof the United Kingdom in the Republic of Armenia."

    Yes it is correct. The word could also be placed at the end of the sentence.

    It could also be place between "In addition" and "Serzh", with a comma on each side.

    In addition, today, Serzh ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I don't see any need for a comma after "today".

    That comma is optional for me, but I would use it.
