I'm Brazilian with a bit spanish


Senior Member
Hello members!

I heard a woman introduce herself by saying "I'm Brazilian with a bit spanish" to mean she is also a bit spanish because her great grandfather was spanish.

I wonder if that is correct, I think we say "I'm Brazilian and a bit spanish."

Do I have to say "I'm Brazilian and a bit of spanish"?
Somehow I think saying "I'm Brazilian and spanish" would work just fine too.

What do you think?
Thank you.

    I'd say "I'm Brazilian with a bit of Spanish," adding of to what the woman originally said.

    Please note that names of nationalities, such as Spanish, always start with upper-case letters in English.
