French Grammar ? --"Tu parle tres bien francais" ou "Tu parle francais tres bien"?

I am going to Quebec this weekend and mon francais is rusty. Can someone clarify the correct usage for me? Thanks.

Update:

Thanks tina, but doesn't the "r" make it infinitive? That would say "You to speak French very well". I don't think that's it. I just need to figure out whether the qualifier (tres bien) come before or after the subject.

Update 2:

Thanks, raman. Wouldn't have remembered to included the article in there. Regarding tu/vous, I will be conversing with someone I know, so "tu" will be appropriate, but good point!

Update 3:

Merci, Oxford. "Je parle" et "Tu parles". Forgot that silent "s". More rusty than I thought...

Update 4:

Merci, Belinda, je prefere "Ton francais est tres bon".

    Tu parle trés bien le français.

    I am pretty sure the "le" is ok before the language. Maybe it's ok without. Also, shouldn't you be using the "vous" form?

    Both are grammatically correct. French as spanish is a language where adverbs can be after or before the noun. But Tu parles tres bien le francais its more common to hear.

    Raman et Tina ont tort.

    C'est comment vous le diriez en français:

    "Tu parles très bien le français."

    tu parler francais tres bein, i added an r to your parler

    edit post:

    actually mark the proper way to say it is

    Vous parlez français très bien.... using vous instead of tu is more polite... and once u use vous, u add a z to the parle...

    I live in Montreal, quebec... hope u enjoy your stay here... :)
