Translation:I think it is a bit of a pity.
'a bit of a pity' sound odd in English, but I can't think of an alternative that retains een beetje
"A bit of a shame" perhaps?
I would say that in English... less often than a bit of a shame but i think.it would have accepted that too?
..a bit of a shame.. was accepted
I agree, how about I find it a little unfortunate
