Compare Verbs

英語は日本語よりかんたんです。
English is easier than Japanese

This is all well and good but I’ve thought of a new sentence I want to say: I understand English better than Japanese. Can we use the same grammar structure but replace the adjective (かんたん) with a verb (わかる)?

英語は日本語よりわかる。

Something tells me this just isn’t right! Am I missing the obvious answer? I will find out.

Update: やはり、だめだ!This grammar doesn’t seem to be applicable to verbs. When I asked a Japanese person he corrected my sentence as follows:

英語は日本語より分かりやすい。
English is easier to understand than Japanese
