Not knowing quite enough yet to speak completely in German, I sometimes need to ask someone on the phone to switch to English (as they normally answer in German).
My last attempt:
Können wir bitte Englisch sprechen?
Didn't feel quite right based on the person's response. After a second or so, they awkwardly said "yes" and continued in English, but I can't help but feel there's a better way to ask this question.
Entschuldigung, ich spreche nur ein bisschen Deutsch
What would be the most colloquial/polite way to ask someone to switch from German and speak English with me?
