How do you respond "a little bit" to the question, "Do you speak Korean?"

I've been saying, "gongbuheyo", (I'm studying) or baeweoyo (I'm learning). It seems like in the texts I've studied, "a little bit" doesn't seem to show up. Is it not a common response?

    You could say "jogeum- yo" (조금요)
    which means "a little bit."

    or, as someone else already mentioned,
    "조금밖에 못해요"
    it's pronounced "Jo-geum bak-eh mot hae yo"
    It means "I only speak a little"
