A demonym is the noun or adjective you use to describe a person from a particular place (e.g., America's demonym is American).

These can be difficult for native speakers, let alone ESL learners, so I made this worksheet to test my students' knowledge on some of the more commonly heard demonyms. There is an answer key included.

I also made a more challenging version of this worksheet that focuses on less-commonly talked about countries; look for it in my uploads.

The above downloadable printable is meant for at Advanced (C1) and Proficient (C2) level. It is excellent for working on your students' Reading skills. It focuses on the theme of Countries, Culture, intercultural communication, cross-cultural communication, Describing people and Places. The exercises come with a key.
