    Default spoke in English

    Hello,

    I'd be glad if someone would have a look at my sentences. I'm wondering if the second alternative is correct:

    -I went to Stockholm at the weekend. I visited my friends.
    -I didn't know you speak Swedish.
    -No, we spoke in English (1)
    ... we spoke English (2)

    Thank you in advance.
