A lot hams speak at least some English. If it's a regular DX call sign exchange contact NATO/ITU phonetics will be almost always be used and it won't matter. If the other station responds to or calls a English CQ the QSO will probably be in English.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
