When you got a form and asking your nationality, what is the correct wording to describe your nationality?
This is a little confuse when asking some Asian people, especially Chinese. As the meaning on Chinese and English is little bit different.
Below is the correct answer on nationality. Hope it saves you.
In Chinese, when you’re asking nationality in Chinese (that is 國籍), it is asking which country you’re from. However, when you’re asking nationality in English, it’s the same meaning that asking which country you’re belongs to. The tricky point is, if a person belongs to China, he/she must be a Chinese, right? Same logic, if a person belongs to Italy, so he/she must be a Italian.
As you see, when you are asking nationality again. Hope you got the idea.
