Traditional characters: 你也是英國人嗎?
I am not sure whether you would like to ask this sentence in Chinese xD

What is the Chinese for "I am definitely not a spy"?

    Chinese for "I am definitely not a spy"='我肯定我一定不是一個間諜'

    If there had been a previous person who was asked if he/she was British, then this question could perhaps be the follow-up question to a second person who could be British? I am guessing there would be a shorter expression to use in such case...

    If an 英国人 is a Brit, then what's an Englishman? (Or I guess a Scot, Welshman, or Irishman for that matter)

    • 英格兰 (Yīnggélán) = England (Thanks ulyaoth8!)
    • 联合王国 (Liánhé wángguó) = United Kingdom
    • 苏格兰 (Sūgélán) = Scotland
    • 爱尔兰 (Ài'ěrlán) = Ireland
    • 北爱尔兰 (Běi Ài'ěrlán) = Northern Ireland
    • 威尔士 (Wēi'ěrshì) = Wales
    • 马恩岛 (Mǎ ēn dǎo) = Isle of Man

    And of course, we can add 人 to any of these to say a person is of that nationality! :-)

    (I'm not a native Chinese speaker, so I am open to corrections, but I hope this helps!)

    "Are you also a British?" should be accepted as correct answer.
