Correct is TALK to

Correct is TALK to you...

Why? Because TALK and SPEAK is not the same.

'SPEAK' we are mostly using when somebody is 'speaking' and somebody else is listening.

He spoke for two hours.
The lecturer spoke about economics.

or we can use it when 'speak' = 'making or creating' words

Please could you speak more slowly?
I speak English and Spanish.

TALK
TALK, we are using in case of 'conversation' between people.
SPEAK when it's more like speach of one person.

I met a friend and we talked about our lives.
Listen, I'd like to talk to you about something.

TALK and SPEAK we are using with preposition 'TO'. In the case of TALK we can sometimes use 'WITH', but usually is used 'TO'.
Also, we can use ABOUT or OF...
I don't know what are you talking about.
Speaking of which... (regarding that)

so it's not correct to say :

so it's not correct to say : he is not speaking to you;
and the correct one is he is not talking to you;

is it so .. Confused

It depends what you mean.

It depends what you mean. Both are correct, BUT:

He's not talking to you. - He's talking (now), but not to you.
He's not speaking to you. - He's not speaking to you anymore (you're not friends anymore).
It's totally different meaning as 'not talking to you'

Talking and speaking

Either way, this is the type of discussion that should be happening in the schools. I proof read a lot of essays for students before submission and I guarantee these words are used incorrectly 8 out 10 times.

There is no a big difference

There is no a big difference between these two verbs. They can often be used in the same situation. For example,

I spoke to Jenny about the meeting.
I talk to Jenny about the meeting.

However, the verb speak has a more serious or formal meaning. For example,

I need to speak to your manager. (I'm a little angry.)
The president spoke about the environment. (The president made a formal speech about the environment.)

The verb talk has a more casual or informal meaning. For example,

Could I talk to George please?
I talked with my friends until the sun came up.

Overall, many teachers and native speakers feel that speak and talk have about the same meaning, but one verb is sometimes preferred.

So, I think first one is correct.
