Učenje angleščine je pogosto povezano z dilemo, katero besedo uporabiti. Boste uporabili speak ali talk?

  • He _____ three languages.
  • What are you _____ about?
Kliknite za pravilen odgovor.
Pravilno:

  • He speaks three languages.
  • What are you talking about?

Oba glagola imata zelo podoben pomen, govoriti, pogovarjati in se včasih lahko uporabita izmenično.

  • Who were you speaking to on the phone?
  • I was talking to my brother.

Speak to je sicer bolj formalna oblika, ki se pogosteje uporablja v telefonskih pogovorih in formalnih situacijah, talk pa v vsakdanjih pogovorih.

  • Could I speak to Mrs Robins, please?

Speak to se nanaša na enosmerno komunikacijo, talk to pa na pogovor.

  • What were you talking about?
    He was speaking about his ideas.
  • He spoke to us in a low and calm voice.
  • They were talking for hours.
