I don't think that parsed the way you meant it. Check the translation:

I guess that is appropriate. :)

I'm not sure I see what the mistake is though. To be clear, the intended meaning is:

    Please allow [excuse] that I speak non-fluently. The reason [for it] is that a long time ago [most recently], lojban was a language used by me.
