In general the sentence structure is relatively flexible in Spanish. You can emphasize words by changing the sentence structure.
The normal structure of Spanish declarative sentences is similar to the English one: subject + verb + object.
The subject pronouns in Spanish are omitted in most of the sentences. In case you want to emphasize the person, you can use the pronoun.
|(Yo)||leo||libros.||I read books.|
|(Tú)||hablas||español.||You speak Spanish.|
|(Ella)||come||Paella.||She eats Paella.|
|(Nosotros)||bebemos||Sangría.||We drink Sangria.|
|(Vosotros)||bailáis||flamenco.||You dance flamenco.|
|(Ellos)||aprenden||matemáticas.||They learn maths.|

In English as well as in Spanish, a distinction is made between yes/no- questions and supplementary questions. Yes/no- questions are answered with yes or no, supplementary questions require a question pronoun (interrogative pronoun) and a more detailed answer with further information.

Hi, I'm Adriaan. I have been teaching Dutch and Spanish for seven years to students of all levels, from absolute beginners to... students who only need conversation. My students are of all ages, from 9 to 76 years old and from all continents. With each student I create a Google doc in which I put all the grammatical information, exercises and homework after each class. I can help you if you want to learn the language for fun, for work, or to prepare for an exam. Languages are my passion! See you soon! Read more
