Doesn't the English need: ' would be able to speak....' rather than ' would speak....' ?
Yes, of course. Or: ‘...could speak with...’
"If I could speak Chinese, I would be able to talk to many people." (failed) It said I was missing a word?
Thank you very much emeyr,
That was very helpful
Speak to many people is better English than speak with
Both are correct. "Speak with" is often used because it sounds more interactive while "speak to" can imply a one-way conversation.
I have a general question regarding "falasse". In my grammar book there is no construction of "falar which becomes "falasse". I only have "falaria" (futuro/conditional) or fale (conjunctivo presente).
Can anybody please enlighten me there
Incorrect sentence. There is no "Chinese" language. Could choose to say Mandarin, Cantonese, or something else that would teach us what to actually say in Portuguese.
