"i came for dancing not for talking" should probably also be accepted

I did the same and was also turned down. But I reported it, maybe once in a while ....

I typed I came to dance, not to speak. What is the difference between talk and speak?

Both should be accepted, but "talk" does sound a bit better in this sentence to my ears because the nuances are different. Speak is often more formal than talk. It's commonly used when someone gives a speech or for someone speaking in an official capacity such as a teacher or the president. Of course, you can also speak with friends but to me even that seems more serious than talking to them. If friends or family said "I'd like to speak to you," I'd think that either there was something extremely serious (like an illness) or they were very mad at me!

talk and speak are synonyms so not to speak or not to talk are the same

hablar: talk decir: speak I think talking generally implies conversing and speaking is more saying words in English. That's why it works better for this specific sentence, I think.

I think it's more like hablar: speak, talk decir: say. Hablo español = I speak Spanish. Qué dices? = What are you saying?

I agree. I was surprised to get it wrong when talking and speaking are the same thing.
