The following question is within a lesson on Memrise.com:
Example1: ¿Conoció tu madre a tu padre en una estación de tren?
Did your mother meet your father at a train station?
Being that I'm so new to Spanish, I would construct this sentence as such:
Example2: ¿Tu madre conoció a tu padre en una estación de tren?
The construction of Example1 really stifles my listening comprehension. This is because my brain is programmed to English, and the construction of Example2 is similar to that of English.
So ultimately my question is, how common do native speakers use the construction of Example1?
If the answer is, "very common", then I'm in for a world of hurt because I find Example1 to be sooooo difficult, and therefore I'll have to increase my study times in this particular area.
