Word order differs amongst languages. In English, it's not difficult to get it right as long as you follow these simple rules:
The verb and the object usually go together:
My students speak English fluently = verb +object
My mother cooked pasta yesterday= verb +object
Did you see your friends at the party?= verb +object
Usually, the verb and the place (where) also go together. If the verb has an object, then the place comes after the verb
I walk to school every morning.= place + time
I've lived in this house for 10 years. = place +time
It's possible to put time at the beginning of the sentence but you would need to also put a comma.
Next month, I'm flying out to Rome.
Every evening, I cook dinner
I hope this is clear but do send me any questions you may have.
