    nationality and races

    Hi,

    What is the correct way to say one's nationality or race?

    1. Hi, I'm Chinese or I'm a Chinese.
    2. Hi, I'm British or I'm a British.
    3. I'm Indian or I'm an Indian.

    Thanks

    I'm Chinese, this is usual, or I am a Chinese man/woman, this is possible.

    The same principle applies. "An American, a Singaporean, an Indonesian".
    Please remember that the first letter of the names of countries, nationalities and languages is always capitalised.
