Ko is not used at the beginning of a sentence.

"Ko" is used after a specific verb or noun because it is used as an object.

Also after a noun as a possessive...
ang libro ko = my book
ang bahay ko = my house
etc.

If it's used with a verb, I. If noun, my
 
Kinain KO ang isda. I ate the fish
Pagkain KO ang isda. Fish is my food

For natives learning English as a SECOND language...all the equivalence...helps them understand all the unique English grammar. As English natives...learning Tagalog as a SECOND language...why would we burden Tagalog with English parallels. Tagalog has much cooler fluidity and nuance when you take her as she comes. Every tagalog sentence is 40 - 50% markers / linkers....then 10 - 15 emphasizers (softeners or strengtheners)....and then...if you listen...indicia of intent and motivation. To my ear, I prefer the DIRECTION of their emotion and culture. I get stronger CONNECTIONS to people in that approach. But if you prefer translation, enjoy. Kita kits salabas. Tagalog is more fun DIN!
