Giselle del Val

A question
Hi dear friends!
I have a problem with nationalities when we want to refer to a group of people.
Eg: ItalianS eat pasta    BUT  Japanese eat fish
Why and when do we use the plural form?
 Thanks a lot! Smile

Basically, we do not change the nationalities ending in -ese, -ish, -iss, -ch.

 You have a very good explanation here:
