    Als adjective you write "deutsch". For example "die deutsche Sprache" (the German language).
    In the sense of "how" (similar to adverb), it is also written with small letter, "ich spreche deutsch". (as answer to question, how do I speak?) (This is bit confusing).
    As a language it should be written in capital: Ich spreche Deutsch.
    As nationality:
    Deutscher (German citizen, male), Deutsche (female singular and plural).
    with indefinite article:
    Ein Deutscher (male singular), eine Deutsche (female singular), Deutsche (plural)
    With definite article these become:
    Der Deutsche (male singular), Die Deutsche (female singular), Die Deutschen (plulral - note the ending).
    The above examples are for nominative case (subject). The endings change again depending on the case (accusative, dative, genetive).
