You must install them separately. A Runtime Language includes the language model, acoustic model, and other data necessary to provision a speech engine to perform speech recognition or TTS in a particular language. There are separate Runtime Languages for speech recognition or speech synthesis. The version of Runtime Languages that you download (for example, version 11.0) must match the version of the Speech Platform Runtime that you have installed. You can download Runtime Languages using this link.
