understand a bit/a little/some

Hello,

Let's say that somebody says: "You speak Spanish, don't you?"

Can I reply: "No, but I understand some."? Or is it totally incorrect and I need to say sth like "No, but I understand a bit/a little"?

Thank you in advance

    I would say "No, but I understand it a little." "No, but I understand it some" would be possible (informally) in some regions.
