Why is "Bist du groß" incorrect?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hohenems

Word order. 1) "Bist du groß?" is a question based on the order you put the words in. "You are large" is a statement. 2) The verb is always (almost always) in the second position in German. Read more about it here: http://german.about.com/library/weekly/aa032700a.htm

Why is Du bist gross not correct? In Switzerland they do not use ß
