Be known that if you had visited the site earlier and subsequently if you go to the site, the language when viewed the site last would be used irrespective of the setting in the plug-in "System - Language Filter". The information is stored in the cookie. Probably changing the lifetime of the cookie would be of help.

Try the following:

Go to the Plug-in Manager, open the plug-in "System - Language Filter" for Edit and for the option "Cookie Lifetime" choose the value session. By default this value would be set as Year.
