Hello everyone,

i just want to translate the following into french:

I don't speak much french, but i can say that...

The first part should be: Je ne parle pas Français

But i dont know how to translate the second part.
It would be nice if somebody could help me!

Greetings from Germany ;)

    The problem is that in English can may be used to mean know how to or be able to.
    know how to
    would be translated by the verb savoir, whereas pouvoir translates be able to.

    ... mais je sais dire "cette ville est belle" (= but I know how to say ...)
