    Nach dem Abendessen sitzen fast alle Chinesen vom frühen Abend bis in die tiefe Nacht vor dem Fernseher.
    Rule: 1) In a main close, the verb is always in second position. 2) In a subclause, the verb is always in last position.

    You can recognize subclauses by conjunctions (dass, wenn, weil, ...) or relative pronouns. Proper conjunctions for main clauses (und, oder, aber, denn) don't count and are thought to be in "zeroeth" position.
