Avengers and (foreign) languages

I know there are many stories where Natasha and/or Bucky speak Russian, but I'm looking for fics where OTHER Avengers speak non-English language, not necessarily perfectly or fluently, but enough to understand and not be fascinated by this strange phenomenon of people speaking NOT-ENGLISH while gaping like idiots.

I mean, Cap could be speaking French coz Dernier was French/France was their biggest ally, a bit Japanese coz Morita was Japanese (hell, maybe swear words), German coz no self-respecting strategist is taking his team into a hostile territory w/o speaking the language of his enemies, maybe local languages like Greek/Hungarian/Austrian...

We have already seen Bruce speak Hindi in Avengers, but how about Swahili...I don't know any other African languages, but if he is trying to blend in "third world countries" he cannot act like an American tourist and not understand a word of the local languages.

Or Pepper/Tony, coz s/he is a fucking CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and how can s/he be sure their, say Chinese for eg, partners are not trying to rip them off (yes, there are interpreters, but they can be bought), especially in the aftermath of IM-1.

Or, idk, Thor/Loki who knows All-Speak, so he doesn't really care what Earth language you speak, his internal translator works just fine with any and all languages (current or ancient), for eg maybe Thor reading Hieroglyphics with ease coz all "Earth" script is same to him.

Basically, I'm looking for any good stories where Avengers speak or communicate in non-English languages.

P.S. NOT looking for non-English stories. Regular English stories where only the characters communicate in non-English languages.

PPS - Non-pairing Gen preferred. If pairings, NO Brucetasha. Also, original Avengers only. I don't really care for the new ones except Sam and Spidey. Definitely NO Wanda, Vision or Darcy
