A simple statement is one that has no questions or direct commands.
The most important rule that you want to remember about word order in simple sentences
Or main clauses in German language is that the finite verb always comes as a second idea.
Finite verb is a verb that can be either singular or plural, in the past or present tense.
Sie spielen mit meiner kleinen Schwester.
They are playing with my little sister.
Mein Mann schwimmt jeden Tag mindestens 500 Meter.
My husband swims at least 500 metres every day.
In the above examples, spielen and schwimmt are the ﬁnite verbs
There can be just one ﬁnite verb in each German sentence; inﬁnitives and past
participles , for example, are not ﬁnite verbs
Sie werden wohl erst nachts ankommen.
You’ll probably not arrive until night-time.
Wir hatten den Film schon gesehen.
We had already seen the ﬁlm.
In the above German sentences werden and hatten are the ﬁnite verbs.
