I spoke about this with Amikeco once in the chat, I was always taught nom-acc-dat-gen This last order is pretty common among (Spanish) DaF teachers, because it's the 'natural' progression on case learning (first nominative, and genitive the last if at all); it also helps to group similar forms of adjectives and determinatives on tables (nominative and accusative share a lot of similar forms, and genitive and dative share a couple of them).
The order written by Jayden is the order in which Latin is taught around here

My first step is to get myself comfortable with the basic grammar rules. I'm particularly interested at the moment in finding some good resources you can recommend for things like gender agreement, adjective/noun declension, verb conjugation and maybe something on basic word order also.

This will be riddled with errors, but I figure best way to practice is to jump right in and well, practice. I appreciate any corrections
I've looked at the basics, but there's a lot to take in and can't overload myself I'm learningCar wrote:Du solltest dir die Regeln zur Satzstellung genauer angucken.
You should look at the rules for the word order more closely.
Good to knowI didn't correct it now, but usually, you address each other informally (du) on the internet.
