Word order for questions

The word order for questions is also quite specific. You start with your question, wo, wer wann, wie, warum usw (usw means und so wieter - and so on) and you follow it with the verb and the rest of the sentence follows. So in simple sentences and with questions the verb is in second place. Wo möchten Sie wohnen? Wohin fährst du mit dem Auto?

With general questions you do the same in German as you do in English. Sie sehen fern. To make this a question you change the word order to verb, subject and the rest of the sentence. Sehen Sie fern? You will understand this word order. Will you understand this word order?

Bis bald
