Changing the language of the Skype client is as simple as clicking Tools >> Change Language >> then selecting the preferred language.

 

However, changing the the Skype language back to English (or the language preferred) could be a bit difficult, especially if you are facing a user-interface with a language you are not familiar with.

 

Basically, I think that the positions and locations of the menu options are the same regardless of the language selected or activated.  You can use the screenshot below as a reference if for some reason your Skype client suddenly changed its language to an unfamiliar one, and you want to revert it back to English.

Use this screen grab of the tools bars in Arabic to click your way through resetting to English.  Click the second from the left; the second from the top, then the English choice on the menu that comes up:
