When you want to describe someone’s nationality, just add the word 사람 (people) behind the country name. For example, Korea 한국 + 사람 = 한국 사람 (Korean). By adding the word 인 behind the country name, it means race, such as 한국 인 (Korean), 인도 인 (Indian), 말레이 인 (Malay) or 말레이시아 인도인 (Malaysian Indians). Names of languages, are formed by placing 어/말 after the name of country. For general language, add 어, 말 is for describing spoken language. Examples – 한국어/한국말 (Korean), 일본어/일본말 (Japanese), 중국어/중국말 (Chinese),  외국어/외국말 (Foreign language). However for English, is just 영어 without referring a country. But for United States English, United Kingdom English or Australia English, may write as 미국 영어, 영국 영어, 호주 영어 to differentiate them.
