    Default Word order - Urgent!!

    Hi,

    Could you please tell me what are the English rules for word order in the follwing case?

    I always went to school at 7 o'clock on Mondays.

    I always went to school on Mondays at 7 o'clock.

    Are both correct? Is it time, day, month and year the right order, or is it possible to alter the order so that the focus is on time or day?

    Thanks

    On Mondays, I always went to school at 7.00 in the morning.

    7.00 o'clock in the morning is the time I went to school on Mondays.
