England v Britain

It's always 'England' in the exercises here. Never British. I know a lot of the world thinks that the word England stands for Britain too, but it really doesn't, and it doesn't half upset those of us who are Welsh, Irish and Scottish! Please use British sometimes, DuoLingo

The course "Spanish from English" does contain "británico"

Thank you for that - I just wish they'd use British sometimes at least. Always calling us all English is a common problem, but just plain wrong.

I completely understand and I probably felt the same way as I was growing up in a Mexican-American neighborhood when all of us English-speakers were all called Anglos, or Anglas! I'm not English, well, except for a little bit from a very few of my ancestors. Anyway, being called by my language is one of the reasons learning languages became my hobby.
