There's a post in the "User fixes that may help others" thread that explains it in more detail.

unfortuanatly i dont even get far enough to ask fo a language...i saw the faq on installing the exp disc and followed the instructions about making sure everything was uninstalled to no avail...

Tully is almost certainly right.
Check the "User fixes that may help others" thread in the Community Help Forum for a post that tells you how to add a language key to your registry. The problem is related to whether or not you have autorun enabled when you install the sim.
I've had this happen twice: original install of AEP (I panicked until I found the magic post) and second install of AEP (was expecting it and was ready with the fix) after a hard disk re-format and new OS installation.
The poster included screenshots to make it easy.
At least try it and see if it helps.
