Correct word order

Postby TheDutchboy » Sat Dec 14, 2013 6:36 pm

I completely disagree with my english book.
So that's why I'd like to ask you this.
I learn that you should say this: I don't still know...(rest of the sentence)
But that doesn't make any sense at all.
I think this is correct: I still don't know...(rest of the sentence)

Which of them is correct?

I am sorry for my (probably) bad english.
I am dutch and like I already said, I don't learn good english.
The sentence is one I use in an E-Mail I have to make for english homework and of course every sentence can be used instead of this one.

The correct form is:

I still don't know...(rest of the sentence)
"We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under Milk Wood"
prayer of the Reverend Eli Jenkins in Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas
