Actually, the language for a guest session is the system default
language (as defined in the /etc/default/locale config file), and not
dependent on the language for the user session from which a guest
session is launched. So one option is to set the system language to
what's typically the most appropriate language for the guests.

I agree that letting the guest user select the language would be a nice
feature. Please feel free to file a wishlist bug. (It would be against
the lightdm package.)
