My apologies if VB is not a "real" language but that is the background that I come from. I have never coded in C#, or C for that matter. Sure I have looked at examples and, for the most part, understood it. There were enough syntax differences, though, that I wouldn't be comfortable suddenly being thrust into it if an emergency came up and it needed to be resolved immediately. There would still be some learning curve that I would have.

Could I learn it? Yes. Have I had time? No. So if my manager came to me tomorrow and said "I need this error resolved within the next couple of hours." and it was written in C#, I would be without a paddle. I would love to spend all day learning new languages, but unfortunately in my position I don't have that luxury.
