Use the Language skill whenever you want to speak, understand, or read something in a language at which you are skilled. Most speaking and reading comprehension tests can be considered Simple Success Tests if your skill is over 50, unless the gamemaster rules the subject is sufficiently complex that a non-native speaker would have trouble understanding it.
