Most of my French speaking was with non-native speakers. Bit of a chat in Italian the day after the gathering ended on the castle tour with a nice Italian chap.
They had a non-english area which was a great idea, but would have been nice to have a lecture room dedicated to non-english. Some people were organising impromptu meetups in variuos languages. I think Brun Ulge went to a Japanese one.
I'd say if you're planning on language practice in anything but English you will be disappointed.
Actually I spoke plenty of language besides English. For me that's never been an issue.
