Volug: ...
Ike: Er. Hello. What can I do for you?
Volug: ...
Ike: Hey, that's an elixir.
Volug: ...
Ike: Yes, I like them too.
Volug: ...

(Nailah arrives)

Nailah: Volug, speak out loud. Ike is confused by your silence.
Volug: But, Your Majesty... He doesn’t understand our language.
Nailah: It’s better than staying silent. Sorry I don't mean to leave you out of the conversation.
Ike: No, that's fine. I would have been confused either way. I didn't know you could speak the ancient language.
Nailah: It's Hatari's common language. I would never have known about the Tellius language if I hadn't met Rafiel.
Ike: The Tellius language?
Nailah: You don't know? The language we are using right now is called the Tellius language. You call it modern speech, I suppose.
Ike: Oh, I see.
Nailah: Long ago, beorc created the Old Tongue. The ancient speech is what we laguz call it. The language was too difficult for the laguz to master. So the language of Tellius was created in its place.
Ike: Huh. I've never heard that before. The only people I'm aware of who know the ancient speech are the heron laguz. I think Nasir of Goldoa said he could read it. Among beorc, only mages know how to use it, and that's only for spells.
Nailah: Well, the laguz who live a long time, such as dragons and herons, have all the time in the world to learn it. Beorc probably left ancient speech behind in favor of a newer and improved language, with the exception of spells.
Ike: That makes sense, I suppose. Mordecai once told me that speech lets you avoid fighting when it's not a good idea. He said that's why it's a good idea to know many languages.
Nailah: Did he, now? Volug, did you hear that? You can learn the language of Tellius with Mordecai.
Volug: ...I will... I...will try.
Nailah: He understands what you're saying, for the most part. It's the speaking that's the hard part for him.
Ike: You don't need to feel obligated. I mean, it isn't like I can understand ancient speech.
Volug: Here, I want you to have this. Um, here... Take.
Ike: Oh, I understand. Thanks.
Volug: It’s about time!
Ike: I think I understood that. You were happy that I understood what I just said.
Volug: I guess you could say that.
Nailah: Good. As long as you have the desire to learn, words will soon follow.
Ike: I see. I'll try to learn a little ancient speech from now on, too. Volug, you be my teacher and I'll be your teacher.
Volug: All right. It’s a deal.
