Capitalize ALL nouns! And then follow what SpeakGerman2me says. That'll get you a long way. Except the verb isn't always the 2nd element in a sentence, many times it is at the end; and after many conjunctive phrases. So I usually look to see if the word is in its long form (this is my own way I look at it; grammar is not my forte) and so many times is at the end of a sentence. Otherwise, I put the verb after the main subject's pronoun. I know a lot of people will disagree with me and so I will learn along side of you.
