Does anyone speak any elvish or any other Tolkien language? If so:
Aye! ni S im a i S en amaurea yello Naryaló S dú. Ni S im ráne S mist ohtatyáro S daug man na mára S maer eques S pent Parmalambe.
If anyone can understand this (you must speak Quenya) message me

...I learn Sindarin but I cannot speak it well xD I learn it on the internet but I haven´t the time to learn it. Maybe in the holidays, I try to learn it ^^
At the moment, I can only say hallo and "How are you" and so things xD

Anyway, despite that the films might seem to indicate otherwise, no one can speak any Elvish language fluently. Even Tolkien could not; nor, to pick but one problematic matter out of several, is there really that much attested corpus (especially in any one phase of a given language) compared to real world languages.
Someone who has studied Tolkien's languages (as they changed over the years) invented a lot of Elvish for Jackson's films, but it's Neo-elvish in any case, mixed with authentic Tolkien-made Elvish.
For more on the topic of 'speaking Elvish', I highly recommend reading the FAQ at...
And the longer article 'Elvish as She is Spoke' published at the same website.
