    Default a) some French b) a little bit French

    a) I can speak some French. b)I can speak a little bit French.

    Are both sentences correct ?
    Is it possible to indicate which level of French is higher : the person in sentence a) or the person in sentence b) ?

    Sentence b) is wrong, it would be ok like this: "I can speak a little French" or "I can speak a little bit of French".
    There is no way to tell, from sentence a) or from a modified sentence b), which person speaks more French.
