Countries, Nationalities and Languages Vocabulary in English: Adjective & Noun Forms

    In this comprehensive article, we will embark on an insightful exploration of countries and nationalities in English, elucidating the diverse methods of referring to both countries and their inhabitants within the English language.

    Countries and Nationalities in English

    The term ‘Nationality’ is not commonly employed in everyday spoken English. It carries a formal and official tone, and thus, it tends to be more prevalent in written discourse. It finds significant usage within the realms of travel and immigration.

    Rarely would one inquire directly: “What is your nationality?”

    Instead, it’s more common to inquire: “Where are you from?” or “Where do you come from?”

    When indicating one’s nationality, it’s not customary to say: “My nationality is Chilean.”

    Rather, the standard expression is: “I’m Italian.”
