    First, could you explain why you think enough would work? Answering that might help us understand the way in which you have interpreted its sense.

    I remember Italian well enough to write a simple letter. (adverb)
    I remember enough Italian to write a simple letter. (adjective)

    The confusion no doubt arises from most other European languages, and even Turkish perhaps, I don't know it, using the word "enough" or an equivalent for "fairly often," "quite a lot," and the like.
