And also an attempt to avoiding developing any groups based on language. Besides speaking some language not understood by others is not good etiquette

Legally you cannot be stopped from speaking your own native language neither the company can allege any 'misconduct' against you in this regard unless your such speaking in native language is causing any harm or loss to the business.
