"The girl talks and the man listens."
Translation:Flickan pratar och mannen lyssnar.
You are right, "I talk English" sounds weird. "Jag talar engelska" sounds so much better than "Jag pratar engelska", but you can probably hear people say "Jag pratar engelska" too. I think that I once read that "prata" is originally an imitative word (onomato...something :)), as if pratpratprat = blahblahblah. But nowadays it is used more or less as a synonym to "tala".
