    Can"although" be put in the middle of the sentence?

    The rise of land price, although mildly, leads to the suffer of many peasants.

    Can although be used in this way? Thank you.

    It's not a natural sentence. Where did you find it?

    No, it's not.

    The effect on many peasants of the rise in the price of land, although mild, was still noticeable.

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