Typical word order is SOV (Subject + Object + Verb). But for some sentences with definite article (the) and maybe some determiners (this, that, these, those etc.), it may differ because of the stress/emphasis/accent on any word.

  • (Ben) elmayı yiyorum. ("I am eating the apple.", in this sentence the emphasis is on either "elmayı" or "yiyorum". You can't understand on which part of the sentence the emphasis is in written language but you'll get it conversationally.) = SOV (and the most common in our course)

  • Elmayı ben yiyorum. (The emphasis is absolutely on "ben".) = OSV

  • Ben yiyorum elmayı. (The emphasis is absolutely on "ben".) = SVO

  • Elmayı yiyorum (ben). (The most conversational one, the emphasis is absolutely on "elmayı".) = OVS (if you asked me, I'd suggest you try not to use this one. Especially for your exam, this one is not good.)

I think you meant "Ben bir film izliyorum." for the latter. If so, both of them are correct. "(Ben) (bir) film izliyorum." puts emphasis on "film". And know that those are the same sentences and the words in brackets are optional, which means you can omit them.

IMO the most formal one (equal to the most common) is SOV, as I said in my previous comment it's the typical one.

Do you specifically have grammar subjects you don't understand? Maybe you don't understand how sentences with "çünkü" are formed, so if you tell us what difficulties you are having we could help you easily. You know "I need help with Turkish." is a very general sentence. You can say what you don't understand about word orders, conjunctions.

I only want to understand the way to build the sentences , that is my problem specially in writing there are many words in my mind and I cann't make a sentence from them, like; in english we have at least three parts of the sentence 'subject, object, and verb' and when we are making a sentence its like (I wear a shoes). so in turkish how to use it

There is some flexibility, but in general: subject + object + verb.
