I think you have typed wrong 间 (jian) means between. Are you sure they didn't say 讲 (jiang). To me neither look right. I would just say 我想(要)每天都说汉语。

Both of the sentences are wrong. The first one makes sence, but it is not what you want to express. 我要是天天说汉语 means if you spoke Chinese every ..... It is a hypothesis that means if you spoke Chinese everyday what will happen... And actually, you don't speak Chinese everyday. The best translation for this should be 我想天天说汉语。 I think 说is better than 讲

the emotion of 要 is more powerful than the emotion of 想 that's all
