You probably think saying 'I'm English" sounds weird because you only know 'English' to be a language.

English. But you don't say "I'm a English". You say "I'm English" or "I'm an Englishman"

You could say:
I am english
I am british

We're also called 'britons' but no one would say 'I'm a briton'

English people do not say "I'm a Briton"

People from northern France sometimes say "je suis un Breton" because they are from Brittany. This region used to be known as Little Britain to distinguish it from Great Britain - the big island.

People from England are "English".
All people from Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) can also call themselves British.

They refer to themselves as "I am English" or "We are English", not what you said - "I'm a English" would indeed be weird, and wrong.

An individual could also say "I'm an Englishman / Englishwoman".

If they wanted to identify themselves as from Great Britain they would say "I am British", they would never say "I'm a Briton".

People from The Republic of Ireland (the south of Ireland) call themselves Irish. People from Northern Ireland often call themselves British, but this is not strictly accurate because the island of Ireland (north and south) is not part of Great Britain.

Northern Ireland and Great Britain together form the United Kingdom.

Most people who are not Northern European find this all very confusing. Almost everyone in the Untied States gets it completely wrong.

In plural Englishmen. That sounds right.
Singular; English, like 'He's English'. Or He's a Brit/Briton.
But here in New Zealand, and I think most of Australia you'll always be referred to as 'poms'. 'He's a pom!'
