Can someone help me?...please...

Guten tag!...

I'm just beginning with the german course, which I find very challenging...Nevertheless, I wanted to start writting something...just a sentence....

Binnenzijde mein Verstand...

I would like to know if it is right...or if it isn't, how should it be....I meant to say...."Inside my mind"...

Danke!

Are you sure it's German ? The first word looks oddly dutch to me.

Hallo...Not sure...I am just starting with german...I meant to say "Inside my mind"...I tried to build the sentence word by word...so, no...not sure....How would you translate that sentence?

Well, your sentence is definitely wrong. I'm not a native speaker, but I think a correct way to say it would be "In meinem Verstand" As a beginner you probably didn't encounter declensions yet, so here "meinem" is the masculine dative of "mein", used in a locative sense (because it's inside your mind)

PS: I just checked, and indeed "binnenzijde" is the dutch word for "inside". Be careful, because "deutsch" and "dutch" are different languages.

In case you're curious, here one would use "binnen mijn hoofd" to say "within my head" (literally), or "binnen mijn verstand" (for "within my mind"), in Dutch. "Binnenzijde" would maybe work here, but I think it's redundant as the meaning is already clear.
