I'm revising vocabulary for HSK4 and I found many words with similar meanings. A pair I found today was: 国籍 and 民族. What's the difference between them?

  • 国籍 = nationality (as based on what nation you are from)
  • 民族 = ethnic group

For the majority of Chinese people their:

  • 国籍 = 中国 (Chinese)
  • 民族 = 汉 (Han)
