WoW's (USA) server restrictions really puts a clamp on interaction with international players. The server I am on everyone is a natural english speaker or learned English prior to playing WoW (a russian immigrant in the guild). People are generally from Canada or the USA (haven't met any french Canadians).However in other games with no such country restrictions on what server one can connect to, I have made friends with others (who are Macedonians) that have learned English through the mmo game we were playing.I found that to be impressive to play a foriegn game and learn English by playing. Most said they learned English in school but never retained the skill or paid much attention in class. After some time mastering written English (generally comes first in mmos), through talking programs they'd polish their speaking skills.International mmos can really provide some interesting learning experiences and interactions. I really wish that I could play with my European and Macedonian friends on WoW. I know there is a way to do it but a true international server would be cool.

from US servers you can get on Latin American Servers, I don't know how much they speak in Portuguese or Spainish though. Might roll there today when I'm bored.

I heard that a lot of the people on Latin American servers don't speak Spanish or Portuguese and just use English a lot. WoWInsider may have done an article on it.
