Liten vs Litt

In the example below, which one is correct or more common? And can you explain why? Also, let me know if one of them is incorrect and why. I want to say that "I speak a little Norwegian".

  • Jeg snakker litt Norsk.
  • Jeg snakker en lite Norsk.

Thanks in advance.

"Jeg snakker litt Norsk." would be the correct one meaning "I speak a little Norwegian"

The second one is just wrong, but if you removed "en" from it so that it would be "Jeg snakker lite Norsk", it would mean "I speak little Norwegian"
