Both are okay. ELU link for the same question is here (thanks v kumar)
However, the nuance I see is
someone speaks English represents a statement as in...
He speaks English
someone, speak in English looks more like an advice, suggestion or the like. As in...
Hey, speak in English.
But again, as ELU site states, both are practically fine.
Note: Indian English is fine with 'Speak in [any language]'.
It's "Speak English". E.g "Will I be ok with the language when I go to The Netherlands. Yes, they all speak English.".
"Speak in English" is grammatically correct, but you'll stand out as not being a native speaker. However, "Write in English" is preferred over "Write English"
