Word order is important. How you put words together in a sentence shows how well you know English. This is even more important than just spelling words right or not making typos. Need to see what I mean? Let's look at this.

"I go to ice cream eat" and "ice cream I go to eat" might look okay, but they're not right in English. They are harder to understand than a sentence that has a small spelling mistake but the right order of words, like "I go to eat ice creme." Here's another example taken from this forum.

what skills you do have then

This might be tricky for those who speak English as a second language because all the words are correct. But the order is wrong. It should be "What skills do you have then?" where "do" comes before "you."

When you want to ask something in English using the verb "do," there is a special order to put the words in.
  1. Start with a question word like "what," if you need one.
  2. Then use the helper verb "do" or "does."
  3. After that, say the subject, like "you."
  4. And at the end, put the main action word, like "have."

    ✅
    What do you have?
    ❌ What you do have?

Thinking about word order might seem like a small thing. Why does it matter so much? Well, using the right word order makes it easier for others to understand you. It also keeps you from sounding like Tarzan. Many people love Tarzan, but he's known for talking in a very simple and broken way, not for speaking clearly.

Having trouble with word order? Don't worry. Lots of people have the same problem, especially those who learned English later in life. This is why many find Grammarly so helpful.
