Nationality Adjectives

Average: 3.2 (10 votes)

Country V. Nationality

A common mistake made by English learners is to confuse the nationality adjective with the name of the country a person is from. The rule is as follows:

I'm from + name of country: "I'm from Russia."
I' m + nationality adjective: "I'm Russian."

Are you describing the person or are you talking about the place?

In the following sentences can you choose which alternative you need? Good luck!
