This study delves at how two individuals, one from each of two distinct cultural backgrounds and with very diverse educational backgrounds, learned to communicate in two languages. It looks at the social, political, geographical, and educational factors that affect language acquisition and then assesses those encounters in light of Baker’s (2011) “Dimension of Bilingualism.” This is essential because the process of learning a second language is so individual. It is hoped that the study will aid language educators and researchers in creating more individualised and sophisticated approaches to dealing with the complexities of the issue that arises in bilingual educational settings, as well as contribute to the development of critical insights about the singularity of the bilingual journey.
