    how to say it?

    Hi,

    I would like to say something but I don't know either how to phrase it or the right verb to use. Suppose that I use this form:

    "I'd rather work as a .... because I do not have control on the language yet."

    What I mean is "... because I don't speak English very well.".
    What would you put in place of "have control on"? How would a native informally say it?

    Thanks,
    jc

    I would use "because my English is not very good yet".
