|Japanese term or phrase: Nihongo ga dekimasu ka|
|It is in a play that I am acting in called Kamikaze Kate.|
|do you speak Japanese?|
literally: as to the Japanese language, are you able (to "do" it)?
However, if you want to stress the ability to speak, the proper way of asking would be: "nihongo wa hanasemasu ka"
A note on pronounciation: in Japanese, the "n" in "nihon" is pronounced like in British "new" and the "su" at the end of the verbs sounds simply "s".
