yI- is "you" not "I".  qech is "idea".  (chut is "law").
Add jay' makes the whole sentence intense.

"So speak, damn it.  Present your free ideas.  But for presenting them, if you 
start using klingon, you will certainly notice that you will start to learn 

> chay' bIjatlh <'ach>?

The first two sentences don't mention using klingon.  In a sense, you have 
already been speaking, and presenting your free ideas.  But you were discussing 
the language.  "BUT" if you start using the language to present your ideas, you 
will quickly learn it.

> maj. vaj tlhIngan Hol wIjatlh neH. :) 'e' QaQ je. nuq'e' wIjatlh?

QaQ is intransitive; it doesn't take an object.  But you have 'e' on QaQ as an 
object; and what is the subject?

qech nuq?  juplI' DaghomDI' ('ej tlhIngan Hol bolo'be'taHvIS) nuq Dajatlh?  
DaqlIjDaq qaS nuq?  nuq Data'?  qen lut QaQ Dabej'a'?
