One Direction To Brush Up Their Japanese On YouTube ;)

The One Direction boys are making a massive effort with international fans, particularly those who don’t speak English, because they’re looking to YouTube language tutorials in order to learn some basic words and phrases in the languages of the places they will be touring.

Phew that was a mouthful!

One Direction learning Japanese?

The lads are apparently looking to learn at least 20 of the most common terms in a variety of languages including French, Spanish, Italian and of course Japanese.

Part of the reason for doing this is to avoid the slightly embarrassing culture shock that happened to the boys when they arrived in Tokyo for a press conference. It was very obvious they were overwhelmed with the language barrier…

A source told The Sun:

“The press conference in Japan got embarrassing because the boys’ culture shock was so obvious,”

“Over the weekend they vowed to learn at least 20 of the most common words in the languages of the countries they’re visiting before they land there.”

The Sun’s source added:

“They think it will avoid embarrassing moments and build up a bond with fans.”

“They’re just going to use YouTube tutorials to brush up on their language skills and think that’s going to be enough.”

Well we can’t wait to see some multilingual skills from the boys.
