(Was that correct?)
It makes sense, although படித்தாலும், என்னால் would probably be said படிக்க தெரியும், ஆனா. It's kind of like the difference in between "Although I can read some Tamil, I still can't speak well" and "I can read some Tamil, but I can't speak very well".
Oh - we learned that படி can mean both "to read" and "to learn/study". So, what I wanted to say was more like "Although I am learning some Tamil, I can't speak well".
