It's a struggle. There are so many countries and citizens.

I don't seem to be getting this lesson. I freely admit there are things above my head. When I just don't get it, I want to move on to other things (to stay motivated) hoping sometime in the future I'll get it then. Sadly, I am stuck on a subject that I won't even use much as a beginner. I'd like to skip it.  Just my opinion. Thanks.

Hola Randy

This lesson is about nationality adjectives that end in -e for both masculine and feminine. So the adjective has the same form when referring to a man and a woman:

el hombre estadounidense

la mujer estadounidense

You don't need to change the ending depending on being masculine or feminine. 

We give lots of adjectives for nationalities in the hint and you have to work out which one to use, i.e. if you see that the adjective ends in -e (as showing in the hint) and then the sentence is using a feminine noun, e.g "la gastronomía..., la cultura..., la lengua..., etc", you need to work out that, as it is an adjective that ends in -e you keep the same form for that feminine word."

Is there anything different that you struggle with?
