What's wrong with .NET? If they are willing to pay you to gain .NET experience, that sounds like a good thing to me.

Try not to think of yourself as a "Java" developer. You are a software developer who happens to only have experience in Java at the moment.

Being proficient in Java or any other language and pick up a new language is not a hard thing. All languages has the fundamentals (syntax, concepts, API) but looking at other people's code and test drive a bit will get you up to speed.

The only problem is once you work on a long project with a single language, you may tend forget how to do the same in another.

I agree with this. If C#, then it wont be much of a hard work to get used with it except some language specific things. But if its VB, then a little more work has to be done from your end. I guess it should be C# only.
