える can't be used with verbs whose stem ends in え, like える.
It would sound like this: ええる - which can't be possible.

Talking to someone about this - it doesn't appear to be grammatically wrong, but it is an unnecessarily difficult way of saying せる (えいごがはなせる).

right, it's like saying "it is possible for me to speak English" rather than "I can speak English" - grammatically, it's correct, but no one would really say it under normal circumstances ^.^

Hey guys, one question: In my textbook it sais: これはの[b]りうる[/b]すべてのです。 --> This is all the info i could get/obtain. But why can't I use [b]りえる[/b] here? When do I need to use うる ? Thank you in advance!

Short story: りえる is just fine. There are no situations in which うる is acceptable and える is not. I wasn't sure if there were any rules governing their usage myself, so I did a bit of googling, and it turns out うる is the older form, so you'll see in older Japanese and especially in literary contexts. える is the modern spoken form, and is more common these days.
