    Hi, Angela.
    Either will do.

    What language do you speak? This means we haven't the slightest idea of what language you speak.


    Which language do you speak, English, Chinese, or Turkish? This means that we know you speak one from the three mentioned.

    Re: quick english question

    Hi Angela,

    To make things easier for you just remember the combination - which one - (of the options mentioned / present)

    Which tie do you like? (of the five on the counter of the shop)

    What is your favorite drink?
