That definitely is a useful resource, but very extensive. To get a general grasp on Dutch word order, it's probably better to start with a more brief explanation, before digging into the detail that's mentioned on dutchgrammar.com

See for instance this explanation by the Duolingo Dutch team: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3733010

Can someone explain me why is this question structured this way? I usually struggle a lot to understand how to formulate a question in dutch!
