    That's an awkward word choice in my opinion, at least out of context. Without any context, I think most speakers might have to guess the intended meaning.

    It might mean that you use respectful or humbling language when you speak English.
    Another possibility is that your English skills might be somewhat lacking.

    Remember: context is key! The meaning would probably be quite evident and the usage quite appropriate given the right context.
