    It's correct, but better as "I speak English"(But that means the same as I speak in English)

    "I speak in English" is really a strange thing to say. I can't imagine a context where you would make that statement.

    Женя Белякова has the right idea - говорите I speak English.

    You can say: I speak in English!

    To speak in a language

    Learn to speak in English!

    In Russia, when I meet americans, I speak in English, but to my hot russian girl - in russian.

    No.

    "Я говорю на русском языке"

    или просто:

    "Я говорю на русском"
    "Я говорю по-русски"

    Grammatically, I guess it is correct, but for some reason it just doesn't sound natural.

    I would not use уметь with speaking a language. The best is simply to say "я говорю по-русски".
