英文的問題!!!請進!!!

我想問去到像日本、韓國的地方,如果問人"你憧英語嗎?"

是不是"Can you speak English?"呀?這樣可以嗎?但我覺得有點怪...@

Update:

另外,以下應用哪個才對?

Excuse me,____you tell me the way to the tourist information center?

(can/could)

我听過有人用can,也有人用could,兩個是有分別嗎?

    Hi there,

    Question 1. 'Do you speak English?' is more polite as it asks for a fact but not ability. When you ask, 'Can you speak English,' the question is about the person's abiltiy, whether or not the person 'can' speak English. I think using 'do' is more polite.

    Question 2: Could you tell me .......... is more polite than

    Can you telll me..............

    Hope I have helped you!

    'Can you speak English?' is grammatically correct, but it is not very polite. "Could you speak English?' is better.

    As the same case, using 'could' is more polite.
