A language question...

I was going to start this post by saying the I had an odd request, but upon joining this community I can see that it's probably not that bad ;)

I'm hoping that you people can help me out, I'm looking for the phrase "Do you understand/speak [x-language]?" in several different languages. But spelled out phonetically.

You see, this is a fantasy story and the person is reading phrases from our world off a sheet, obviously she's not a native speaker of any of the languages so she's reading them phonetically (perhaps mispronouncing some words).

Hope you can help,

Thanks,

Cait

EDITED TO ADD
Thanks so much for all of those. This should do me for a while.

I wasn't expecting a response so soon.

Hopefully I'll be able to do my bit and help out around here in the future.
