You say in english
The French drinks a lot of wine.
The Swiss makes good choloclate.

Is there a national adjective without "the"??

    You've used those nationalities as nouns.

    We might say

    Swiss trains are on time.

    French wine is the best in the world.

    I found the rule that national adjectives end with -ese; -ch; -sh; -ss goes with the, it's in my grammar book that way, and now I'm lconfused wether there are some without the.

    Be sure you know the difference between nouns and adjectives.

    Your examples are nouns (The French drink a lot of wine.)

    My examples show the same words used as adjectives.
