"Can you speak English?"
15 CommentsThis discussion is locked.
英文(ying1wen2) is the English language in general, but it can be used in cases when you're referring to written or spoken specifically as well. It's kind of like how the words for languages and denonyms are often the same in English. "German" can either be a noun (the language) or an adjective describing someone/something's place of origin as Germany.
