Thanks Jenny!

Also quick question if you don’t mind.

For イギリス人 is “british” on the allowed list? I know on the vocab page it says “british person” and “Brit” as alternative. Brit is just short for british as far as I’m aware. Just asking because if it is, I would prefer that instead of typing in british person each time :smiley: !

‘Brit’ is usually used as a noun that confers the meaning of ‘a British person’ whereas “British” is usually used as adjective. I don’t agree, that being the case, with the idea of it being on the allow list.

is there another word in Japanese used to mean british then?

Not a specific adjective, no - you’ll learn the kanji (えい) at level 15 though, which is used in many pieces of vocabulary to indicate that something is English, such as in 英語(えいご) English Language

I believe there are certain pubs in which confusing the terms British and English may get you into a row. :wink:

I can’t say, in 34 years as a British person, that I’ve met anyone who really cares. Well, in England, at least. A Welsh or Scottish person would be rightly annoyed to be called English. You technically call them a British person because they live in the British Isles, but most cultural identity would be in their home nation.

It would be a bit much for WaniKani to have to teach ウェールズ人 and スコットランド人
