I never used aspell on Windows, but with Hunspell, this all happens
automatically: for each language XYZ the speller saves your personal
dictionary in the file ~/hunspell_XYZ (on Unix, on ~/.hunspell_XYZ).
I never needed to define any variables for that to work; the moment
you switch the dictionary to use some other language, the personal
dictionary is automatically switched as well.

AFAIR, this worked like that with Ispell as well, so I'd be surprised
to learn that aspell doesn't behave that way.
