Sentence order of the ''where'' questions

Hello folks! I hope someone can enlight me 

why does it say '' Ou' tu vas?'' instead of '' Ou' vas tu?''. Shouldn't we inverse the sentence?

Hi Hazar,

If you say "où tu vas ?" with raised intonation on "vas" then this is an acceptable way to ask the question.

Alternatively, you can use the more standard inversion "où vas-tu ?" form which would appear in the written or oral. 

Bonne continuation.
