Do You Speak French Well

« Parlez-vous bien le 
français, Lou ? — Je ne parle pas 
bien le français, Jacques. »


French-to-English translation:
"Do you speak French well, Lou?" "I do not speak French well, James."

Literally:
"Speak-you well (the)
French [language], Lou?" "I not speak not
well (the) French [language], James."

*Notice the added "space" before the question mark in the French haiku:

*And notice the French quotation marks, called "guillemets" [ « » ], used in the French haiku:
