un peu

I thought 'un peu' (as in the text above) is followed by 'de'...

Je parle un peu d'anglais avec lui.


This question relates to:

You can say, e.g., Je voudrais un peu de vin, svp. -- I would like a bit of the wine, please. So there is a larger quantity of wine of which you take some. This doesn't work with speaking English. There is no larger quantity of English to partake from. Hence the construction: Je parle un peu l'anglais avec lui.
