Would you like us to call you Jorge-san instead? (I remember you said that was your name on another thread)
You can call me Jorge if you want. The "-san" is obviously not needed.

Welcome to this forum. It seems you're making the same mistake that I did, when I first learned Japanese わ It's gonna be a long journey to understand Japanese better, but for me it's so worth it and I hope for you too
Chris, I think Yudansan is so cute and more funny. So I use that more as well :p

Are you sure it's not えいこくじん? えいごじん is something that I've only heard used by preschoolers.
えいこくじん and イギリスじん are the same thing.
No, it's definitly えいごじん. Though i noticed my book (Genki... unfortunatly) uses イギリス.
But in pimsleur i'm sure that's it. 'Cause i even remember being confused because i thought 'go' meant language and so england would be only 'ei' which is weird (i'm still confused by that...).

(To add to what richv said, the reason 米 was chosen for US instead of 亜 is that 亜 was already taken for Asia.)
