In English is it commonly SVO for statements and VSO for questions, but in Spanish it is all over the place. SVO is often replaced by SOV with the use of pronouns, and the subject commonly follows the verb even in statements. In many constructions like intransitive sentences such as the gustar-like verbs the word order changes from that of English.

Welcome to the forum, braid, and to the mixed up world of español. I doubt there is an easy formular otherwise I would be fluent in Spanish by now but you've come to the right place. Stick with the lessons and use the forum regularly and you may figure it out. Also, while you're at it please remember to use proper capitalization as there are people also learning English here and we don't want to confuse them in that department. (Captialization rules are also different in Spanish)
