His friend was new to the area and didn’t speak the language. He didn’t speak it either, but he already lived here and had made it this far. He was concerned for his friend though.

They say you can pick up any language if you’re exposed to it enough. You’ll struggle at first and then eventually you won’t even think about it.

He was still in the struggling phase. That’s not exactly right. He didn’t struggle with it. He accepted it. Things could be hard enough sometimes without the additional self-criticism. He was excellent at being too critical.

He wanted to help his friend learn the language because not everybody can get along in silence. He wanted to make sure that if his friend was silent, it wasn’t because nobody was listening.
