So when it comes to questions the verb always comes first like in german ?
Yes, the verb always goes before the subject in questions. The only thing that can go before the verb is a question word (like 'who, what, how') or a phrase that has the same function as a question word (like e.g. 'how many books'). In statements, the verb always goes in second place, but the subject may go after the verb too, so the order between subject and verb doesn't necessarily change.
