    Hi mrlocom
    .
    First let's correct your question:
    What's wrong with these two sentences ?
    .
    I speak faster than him.--> This sentence is OK informally.
    If you want to improve the grammar, then you should say:
    I speak faster than he does.
    .
    Who did you talk to yesterday? --> Most good grammar books consider this to be correct nowadays. However, using the word whom would be more "formally correct."
