Communication between two session beans in jsp

Hi.
I'm creating a rather complex webpage here, and keeping all methods in one session bean creates an enormous class.
I therefore wonder if it is possible break this into several session beans.
The problem is communication between the session beans.
Say Im using one session for selecting language, and one session for displaying some content.
The java class for language selection is simple: (See code snippet)

Problem: The answer from Content is always 1.

Any idea why?
Or any neat trick to avoid this?

Jsp:
<jsp:useBean id="lang" class="Language" scope="session" />
public class Language implements Serializable {
   private int language = 1;
   private static Reference ref = null;
   public int getLanguage() { return language;}
   public void setLanguage(int language) { this.language = language; }
   public String languageTest() { return language select =  + this.language; }
   public static synchronized Language getDefault() {
       Language obj;
        if (ref != null) {
            obj = (Language) ref.get();
        } else {
            obj = null;
        }
        if (obj == null) {
            obj = new Language ();
            ref = new WeakReference(obj);
        }
        return obj;
    }
}
and the java class for content is :
Jsp:
<jsp:useBean id="cont" class=" Content " scope="session" />
public class Content implements Serializable {
   private Language language;
   public Content() { language = Language.getDefault(); }   
   public String contentBlock() {
       if(language.getLanguage() == 1) return Some text;
       if(language.getLanguage() == 2) return Some other text;
   }
   public String languageTest() { return language select =  + this.language. getLanguage(); }
}

You could have your session bean encapsulate the various beans u need

public class MySessionBean implements Serializable
{
   private Language language = new Language();
   private Content content = new Content();

    ...

hmm. not quite what I was looking for.

Is it possible to something like:
public class MySessionBean extends Language, Content
