No, the word order is incorrect (and it is "wordt", not "werdt"). If you want to place "Suriname" at the front of the sentence, it would be: "In Suriname wordt (er) nog (steeds) Nederlands gesproken".

Anything wrong with this, or is the word order too German? "Er wordt Nederlands nog steeds in Suriname gesproken."
