Question order when using "ton" or "ta" (French)
In Level 2, lesson 4 of the updated French, I have questions about the order of the words in some of the questions in the ending English/French sentence matching activity. Why, "Comment va voyager ton mari?" and not, "Comment est-ce que ton mari va voyager?" for, "How is your husband going to travel?" Why, "A quelle heure va venir ton chef?" and not, "A quelle heure est-ce que ton chef va venir?" for, "At what time is you boss going to come?" Why, "Ou a mange ta famille hier?" and not, "Ou ta famille a mange hier?" for, "Where did your family eat yesterday?" (Sorry for lack of accents. I don't know how to do that in this text box.) Why in the questions is the subject "your boss/husband/family" at the end of the question, but in the other questions without ton/ta the subject is at the beginning like it is in English? Any clarification that anyone could provide would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
