ドイツ語 Translation

I read German better than I speak it.

Is this correct:

Ich lese Deutsch besser als ich es spreche.


Ich lese Deutsch besser als Ich spreche.

It seems that "als" when talking about the past is used as a subordinating conjunction (, but now I'm curious as to whether it still functions as a subordinating conjunction when used for comparisons like here (as the OP used it). One comment omits the object "es" – but if you don't it seems like it's important to know the proper word order.

Any answers regarding this?

This is gramatically correct, except one detail:
Ich lese Deutsch besser, als ich es spreche.

No sentence can contain 2 verbs without comma, except when its connected with a conjunction and "als" doesnt do that here.
