Way to make it easier: " About... X...? "
So I imagine, in the English more literal translations, " about " before the first noun. " About Paul, has he left? " " The kids, have they had their breakfasts? " Is that a good habit?
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming inverted questions with nouns in Le Passé Composé (conversational past)"

Inverted questions are more elegant. Depending on the actual situation, it might sound approriate or over-the-top. It isn't a good habit in general. You need to develop a feel for when they fit and when not.
