You said UK / United Kingdom = England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland
British Isles = England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic Of Ireland

I know this is an old post, but this is the best video ever on the differences between Great Britain, United Kingdom, etc.

I'm pleased at the lack of "ignorant Americans" comments. I thought this would be a treasure trove of "yeah so many stupid Americans always get this wrong!" Sometimes I like being wrong.

The irish

Eh, this is why I refer to them as England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, etc. The UK, Britain, Great Britain just make it more complicated.

Just so you know, the most common language on these islands is English. Common minorities are Gaelic and Scots. Even if Scottish or Irish speak a minority language, the most likely also speak English. People in foreign countries actually learn two or more languages from a young age, unlike Americans.
