Not all of us have a lot of languages in common, so it ends up being mostly English. Also, I find my language levels plummet in that environment with the noise and crowds and lack of sleep. I thought I was the only one, but I found out that other people also struggle a bit.
Anyway, I spoke mostly English, but I was involved briefly in a Spanish language conversation with Zenmonkey and a Spaniard whose name I forget, though I didn't say much myself. I spoke with Cristina sometimes in Norwegian and other times in English. And when I was in the big Thalia bookstore in Vienna and found the mother lode of language books, I ran down the stairs with my arms full of German grammar books, looking for Dave, and I was so excited I accidentally spoke German for probably the third time in my life.
Oh, and I also had some text-chats in Esperanto, if that counts.
I also had some conversations in Norwegian, Spanish and Japanese with non-forum people during the Gathering.
