How are Japanese sentences ordered?

Vampire

I have been wondering how Japanese words in sentences are ordered. I know in English we have the adj, subject, (maybe another adj), and verb. I also have been wonderind what ni, mo, ha, ga, and wa. Could someone help me out with that so I can make my own sentences?

Hi dat-fan-girl, 

Generally English is a subject-verb-object language whereas Japanese is a subject-object-verb language. 

ni, mo, ha, ga and wa are particles that change the function of the word that is used on. 
I recommend going through the interactive audio lessons section as this introduces you to the use of these particles. It repeats the use of the same particle many times so you will get the feel of how to use each one hopefully!

Best wishes,
Keiko
