He speaks only English

Il ne parle qu'anglais.

Is that right or wrong, please, you who know about these things?

Thank you, Eric.  But, do you think EuroTrash's way is a little more elegant?  And easier to say with the definite article in front of anglais?

Re: He speaks only English

The first choice is easier to pronounce.......Are you saying it or writing it?? If you are saying, use the easiest. If you are writing a letter to Sarko...use the second.
