We know how these phrase ends up

Both "speak" and "talk" should be recognized in this exercises as equivalent translations for "parlare."

So is this a group of people asking if they may speak OR one person asking another person to have a conversation?

My grade school english teacher would respond, "I don't know, can we?"

Idiomatic translation: "you are in trouble."

Look out what's coming! All jokes aside, it is a mature way to request a conversation, rather than leaping in unannounced, like a teenager.
