Saying when we do something in German can be a little tricky sometimes, if we don't remember the straightforward rule:

The verb (doing word) is always the second idea in a sentence.

If you start the sentence with saying when you do something, the verb must come next.

For Example: Sometimes I lay the table= Manchmal decke (verb) ich den Tisch.

This exercise will help you practice this important rule.
