se must be in the second position https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/31466920/Ordering-the-Czech-clitics-Introduction-2019-04-18
No, impossible. It must be with either
"zajímat se o něco"="to be interested in something" -> "Zajímáš se o toho muže." where "toho muže" is the object in accusative and the omitted subject is "ty".
using "zajímat" as "Ten muž tě zajímá?" or more common "Zajímá tě ten muž?" where "ten muž" is the subject in nominative and "tě" is the object in accusative.
There is no place for the "jsou". It just does not belong there. Also, it is zajímáš with the long Á. And se must be in the second position.
You cannot directly translate this passive construction "are you interested" in Czech. Firstly, there is no such equivalent with this meaning, secondly you have not learnt the appropriate grammar for such passive constructions yet. It would involve participles (like the English participle "interested") and not normal forms like zajímáš. (e.g., are you loved? - jsi milovaný?)
