Please help me!
I am rather confused between " Which" and " What". Please help me distinguish them. Thanks
Please tell me the difference between two sentences:
Which language do you speak at home?
What language do you speak at home?

hi Huhuvotoi .. I think it s a bit like saying .. I have A, B and C .. which do you want? .. as opposed to just generally what do you want? .. or maybe, for example .. he s Italian .. his wife s Spanish and they teach English .. which (from Italian, Spanish and English) language do they speak at home? .. 

regards, Julian .. Smile

In other words "which" implies selection but "what" is for general use..when the selection from some items is not necessary...
Hope it helps..
