No one can understand Dracula... except for those who speak Romanian or Hungarian :-)))
It's better to understand what the evil one says, no? :-)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Dracula speaks perfect English...

"I am glad you found your way in here, for I am sure there is much that will interest you. These companions"—and he laid his hand on some of the books—"have been good friends to me, and for some years past, ever since I had the idea of going to London, have given me many, many hours of pleasure. Through them I have come to know your great England; and to know her is to love her. I long to go through the crowded streets of your mighty London, to be in the midst of the whirl and rush of humanity, to share its life, its change, its death, and all that makes it what it is. But alas! as yet I only know your tongue through books. To you, my friend, I look that I know it to speak."

"But, Count," I said, "you know and speak English thoroughly!" He bowed gravely.

"I thank you, my friend, for your all too-flattering estimate, but yet I fear that I am but a little way on the road I would travel. True, I know the grammar and the words, but yet I know not how to speak them."

Even at this stage in his language learning, the Count spoke better English than Van Helsing. What a marvel.

Then, you should only practise at daytime. I've heard he doesn't want to get tanned.
