My grandmother comes from Flanders


Explanation:
Agree. Wrong language pair and even though you're trying to say something in Flemish, it's -unfortunately- bad Flemish at that :(.

You most probably want to say: 'mijn oma komt uit Vlaanderen' ('my grandmother comes from Flanders') or 'mijn Oma is een Vlaamse' ('My grandmother is Flemish').

'meen' should be 'mijn', 'kom' should be 'komt', 'vlaams' is wrongly used in the sentence: someone speaks Flemish or is Flemish, but s/he comes from Flanders.
Anyway, I'm sure you don't need lengthy explanations

No references needed here. Born and raised in Flanders:)



Hope this helps.
