Also can be confusing in German because it can be put in several places, and also because it can have several meanings..
Here in Fluenz 5 we use it in the sense of "So", to express a consequence, so to avoid more confusions for now, let's focus on this use.
When used in this sense, "also" can have 2 positions: it can be put right after the verb, in this case the order of the rest of the phrase stays the same, as in:
Du hast also nichts gegessen.
Er isst kein Fleisch, wir müssen also vegetarisch kochen.
And it can also be used at the beginning of a sentence, in which case you need to invert verb and subject (keep in mind that in German the rule is that the verb goes in second position), as in:
Also hast du nichts gegessen
Er isst kein Fleisch, also müssen wir vegetarisch kochen.
In conclusion, your sentence is correct! and the program should accept it, we'll make sure to fix it and allow this order each time it's possible.
Thanks a lot for the feedback and good luck with the rest of German 5!! Tschüss!
