Error in flashcards? Lesson 1.5
On the Lesson 1.5 Flashcards, it says for the American flag, it says "el inglés". Shouldn't it say "el americano" since "English" refers to those from England? If not, please explain.
If we consider that the flag represents the language, then I believe it's correct, but if we consider that it represents the people from that place it wouldn't be correct.
Inglés means English just like Español means Spanish.
Español means the whole languaje, from Spain, to Latin American. So it applies to "Inglés" as well. You can be more specific and say "Inglés británico" or "Inglés americano" if you want, but you can think "inglés" as in general English. Hope it helps. : )
The flashcards in that lesson that have the flags are referring to the language spoken in that country.
