GNUstep apps can _only_ be written in Objective-C?
Kind of.  They can only be written in a language that has good bridging to 
Objective-C[++].  All of the interfaces are exposed as Objective-C objects, but 
there are bridges that allow these to be used from (as far as I am aware):

  - Java (JIGS)
  - Ruby (RIGS)
  - Python (not sure if this has a name, but I think it’s now part of the 
upstream ObjC bridge).
  - Rust
I'm not sure if the port still works anymore,
however bindings to the scheme-like language with objective-c like
dispatch added, making the briding pretty seamless.


There are two Smalltalk bindings I know of too, StepTalk and GNU Smalltalk.

About 3.5 years ago I found quite a few other bindings: http://www.sicpers.info/2014/02/replacing-the-language/
