    Lightbulb speak or talk?

    Good day everyone,
    I have just taken the "speak vs talk" test and scored only 50%
    Could you please explain me the grammar rule for their different use/meaning?
    Is there any grammar rule section in the web site?
    Looking forward to receiving your feed-back!

    BYE!
