Hello, everyone.
I saw a sentence recently, it says:
I must say your English here is very good, and I do not say that lightly as I majored in English Literature in college.

I'm confused about the word 'lightly', does the second part of the sentence, the part after the comma, means 'I do not say your English is good, rather very good, cuz I majored in English literature in college'?

Thanks for you guys! Hope could help me out.
