English term or phrase:Do you speak russian fluently?
I am trying to converse with someone that knows russian, but i am unsure of to what extent.
KPATEP: "fluently" is an adverb, so it has to modify a verb (here, "speak"); "fluent" is an adjective and thus has to modify a noun, so the sentence would have to re-worded to something like "Are you a fluent speaker of Russian/fluent Russian speaker?"
