'Speak' - 讲 vs 说

What is the difference between 讲 and 说? They both seem to imply 'speak' - eg:
我普通话说得不好
我讲标准普通话

Thanks!

    1.强调 把事情和道理说出来:讲说。讲学。讲武。讲演。讲义。讲师。讲坛。
    2.注重某一方面,并设法使它实现:讲求。讲团结。
    3.和解:“而秦未与魏讲也”。
    4.商量,商议:讲价儿。讲条件。


    1.用话来表达意思:说话。说明。演说。解说。
    2.言论,主张:学说。著书立说。
    3.责备:数说。

    中国字表达方式有很多。根据不同情况,意义就不一样。希望对你有所帮助。

    i feel 讲 similar to speak, 说 similar to say
    在普通话中,讲和说类似,基本可以相互代替,口语交流时没有太大的区别
    讲有点商量的意思,有征求对方意见的意思
    如:
    来,我跟你讲一件事 (与对方商量的语气)
    跟你讲个事情,你看该怎么办好?
    说是说明一件事情的意思,主要意思是告诉你这件事
    如:
    来,我跟你说一件事(事情告诉对方的语气)
    这个秘密说出来后,我心里舒服多了

    你也可以说 我普通话讲得不好。
