    You should use "beautifully" in this context. It is an adverb, describing how you want the action to be done. Note that "Speak more beautifully" is a quite unnatural sentence. You have written it in the imperative so you are ordering someone to speak more beautifully. That is strange.

    Also, look at my corrections to your post. Remember these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.

    Remember to put the words you are querying in quotes so that they are distinct from the rest of your sentence. Take care with your spelling. I am sure that you know that "thans" is not the correct spelling of "thanks". Check your spelling before you post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
