    a qualitatively new moment

    In my previous topic I asked you to check my news report for mistakes. The thing I don't understand is whether "a qualitatively new moment" sounds natural to you.

    The second visit to India by the US President marks a qualitatively new moment in relations between two countries.

    Honestly, it's just a
    literal translation from my mother tongue.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: a qualitatively new moment

    No, it doesn't sound natural. I missed it when I suggested amendments to your original. I would use something like "a significant improvement", if indeed it is an improvement.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
