Resolved questions
Can someone please explain the '-jin' suffix to me please?

 

Is it simply to indicate where a person is from?

Igirisu - England
Igirisu-jin - English person

Watashi wa Igirisu-jin desu - I am English

Is this correct?
Thank you in advance to anyone who can help.

    Yeah when you want to talk about people,you would have to use -jin (人)
    For example:
    igirisujin-English
    burajirujin-brazilian
    僕は(わたしは)イギリス人です
