The sentence “이 밥 먹을 수 있어요?” Has 2 different meanings. It is a double entendre. As you know, it can be “am I permitted to eat this rice?”. And also means “is it edible? (I am wondering if this rice is gone bad)”
And “may I talk to you in korean?” doesn’t mean what you wrote. It means “당신과 한국말로 대화할수 있을까요?” “한국말 할 수 있어요?” is “Can you speak korean?” 😂
