Why is "C" upper case while in other countries the first letter is usually lower case (in Spanish). Or, do i remember wrong?

No, countries in Spanish are capitalized, while nationalities are not.

For example: Mis padres son de China. Son chinos.

I wish that the audio didn't make "China" sound like the name "Tina." "Cheena" I might be able to get, but I swear that the speaker turned the CH sound into a T.

Hmm The DL answer was "My dads are from China" Maybe the one child policy led to an over supple of men?
