Je ne parle pas français/Je ne comprends pas le français


Explanation:
According to the context, it seems that this person wants to say he/she doen't speak French, rather that doesn't read it.
The translation would be:
Je ne parle pas français/Je ne comprends pas le français, mais je peux tout de même vous aider. Puis-je vous répondre en anglais?
