    don't talk/speak to me like that

    Don't talk to me like that.
    Don't speak to me like that.


    Is there any difference in using 'talk' and 'speak' this way?

    Not really.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
