The English/pt/francais sentence structure is a bit rigid when you start learning languages with declination, like German, Russian or Arabic. They are extremely flexible, you can pretty much paint with each sentence. But at the same time, it makes the learning process more difficult.
A simple structure in German can have at least 4 ways to write:
Standard: SUBJ + OBJ + PRED Dir + PRED ind
SUBJ + VERB+ OBJ + PRED Dir + PRED ind
OBJ + VERB + SUBJ +PRED Dir + PRED ind
PRED Dir+VERB + SUBJ + OBJ + PRED ind
PRED ind + VERB + SUBJ + OBJ + PRED Dir +
If a modal verb is used – for future, past, or obligation – the main verb must be at the end: verbklasser.
if anything other than the subject comes on the first position, the pronoun must be in the third position!
So with those two rules, basic sentences can be built.
