With say (present) or said (past)
Use speak (present) and spoke (past) with languages, and with talking in general (no specific details).
Tell means “to give information to a person” – so tell (present) and told(past) are always followed by a person
To say: He says a word. He says "nooo"!
To talk. Often: He talks with his friend. To chat. He likes to talk alone. The act of pronouncing words.
To speak. To speak (without a word). Listen, he speaks! Speak + language. He speaks French. Berbahasa.
Not much meaning alone, without the word he says. Only a part of sentence here, if you use "He speaks", but it's a complete sentence with "He talks".
