Sorry, but it shouldn't. I know that that is tricky for English speaker, but Spanish Presente cannot always be translated as To be + -ing form. In this particular case, "Tú hablas francés", there is nothing to tell us that the action is currently on-going. It's not a description, it's more of a habit or an ability. Thus, it should be translated as "You speak French"
