I have translated it directly: "du er blevet rød i bagsiden af din hals" and got incorrect :( But why?

    That would be "Du er blevet rød på bagsiden af din hals."

    I don't know if your version should be accepted, but "nakke" is certainly the best translation of "the back of the neck".

    And nakke wasn't listed as a choice when you put the arrow over "neck".

    Nakke is on the same side of you as your back, while hals is on the same side as your face.

    If you know Finnish, these are niska and kaula, respectively.

    Kan ordet "rødmer" bruges i sætningen?

    Er det ok at skrive "Du er blevet rød i nakken."?
