I'm a French-Canadian (from Ontario!) who is learning Spanish. I like grammar. I also love to draw, bake, sew, play video games, and read.

Sloth is right. In English, 'American' is the correct term for a resident of the US, but in Spanish it is technically 'estadounidense'.

Also, North and South America are considered one continent in South America (whereas we consider it two continents), so I can see why there might be confusion for English speakers to hear South Americans call themselves 'American'. To them, everyone residing on these two continents are 'Americans'.
