Same problem. Spell check works fine, but the interface is in
Spanish. Although, again, even though I set the dictionary to en-us,
I still have to select English (American) in the right click menu.
First time and only instance of Zim on that laptop, only
python-gtkspellcheck, no gtkspell, only English dictionaries.
Wow, you've got me then...
It's an entirely manageable problem, in itself. It would be niggling to
press on, but, of course, that's the curse side to the gift of the
tinkerer personality I suppose. Just out of curiosity, I noticed on
theUbuntu-PPA page that libgtkspell0 is recommended because "GtkSpell
provides word-processor-style highlighting and replacement of misspelled
words in a GtkTextView widget. Right-clicking a misspelled word pops up
a menu of suggested replacements."
On my laptop I had just followed this advice: sudo apt-get install
graphviz ditaa texlive dvipng gnuplot scrot libgtkspell0
So I decided to remove it. Afterwards, two questions arose. First, spell
check in Zim worked the same without it, so what is it's point?
Second, what the heck? Why did it remove inkscape, geany, pidgen, tomboy
and slypheed? I use none of them, except Tomboy, so I let it and then
reinstalled Tomboy, which didn't, then, pull it back in as a dependency.

After this operation, 99.9 MB disk space will be freed.
I consider this issue resolved, so don't worry about it. I am just
curious what libgtkspell0 is in relation to python-gtkspellcheck, if
any, and why removing a lib I *just* installed would remove so many
packages that pre-existed it.
