Is this sounds awkward or sounds natural to you?

I talked this subject to a friend and he said to me that I understood wrong because he does not teaches in this way, but in reality, he teaches in other ways. But I was more satisfied with your answer rather than the asnwer of my friend.

    I talked ABOUT this subject WITH a friend. He said to me that I understood incorrectly because he (unless this is the same friend, you have a confusion of pronouns here. Be specific about who you mean.)
