Shouldn't there be an inversion with "misschien"?

It depends. If you put 'misschien' at the front of the sentence, then yes:

  • Jij kookt misschien niet.
  • Misschien kook jij niet.

'Misschien ben je niet aan het koken' is corrected to 'U bent misschien wel niet aan het koken'. Can someone please explain? How can you know that 'you' is meant to be 'u' rather than 'je'? Where does the 'wel' come from, and is it obligatory? Bedankt!
