/*****************************************************/

The example provided here is not a managed api, but it's more of a workaround.

public string GetDefaultLanguage()

{

  // I just create a new thread. This gets the language of the operating system (even if the running thread
  // has been set with another language later on)
  System.Threading.Thread temp = new System.Threading.Thread(new System.Threading.ThreadStart(DummyMethod));
  return temp.CurrentCulture.TwoLetterISOLanguageName;

}

private void DummyMethod()

{

  // just to be able to create a thread

}
