Abstract

This is a narrative about two people who each learnt an unfamiliar language as adults. Both felt that they had to learn the language because the situations they were in demanded it, and both got ample support in acquiring the languages. In this article, I have discussed how, in addition to the felt necessity and the support they received, it is their personal motivation and voluntary effort that led to the learning of the new language
