Skype typing in chinese/japanese?

(I can't recognise what language the characters are in, although I'm sure they're asian)

 

I was having a normal skype conversation with a friend, bumped my keyboard with my arm, and now I type in Japanese. I have skype language set to English, all of skype is still in english, but when I type, lines come up under my letters and change them to Japanese characters. It's not my keyboard settings, just skype. How can I go back to typing in english?

 

(Can add pics showing problem if they're needed)

Thank you! Instead of going into IE, I went straight to control panel > language options. I deleted the Japanese keyboard option, so now UK English is the only one left and my skype is working fine again.
