It should be "Jeg taler engelsk", you only use snakker when you are talking with someone

Yep, but that goes to show that there is extended learning beyond Duolingo.

'engelsk' is really hard to say!!! :(

Glad to know it would be taler rather than snakker. However, when do I know to use "Jeg siger" versus "Jeg snakker"?

snakker is more likely to be "talk (with somebody)" siger is "say"

    I am speaking in English would also be grammatically correct though. :(
