One Direction Doesn't Want Any More International Embarrassment! Vow To Take Language Tips From YouTube!

| Filed under: YouTubeOne Direction

Oh you sweet, naive young things!

It's been an eye-opening few weeks for the five lads of One Direction; Niall Horan discovered poverty exists while on a trip to Ghana, and then in Japan the quintet were literally at a loss for words during a press conference because none of them knew ANY Japanese.

Not even guide-book level phrasing!

Which makes sense as they are totes too busy getting bombarded by crazy fans and recording vanilla pop tunes to learn such pointless skillz.

LOLz!!

BUT to counter their poor linguistic abilities, the boys have vowed to learn language basics of every country they plan to visit by hiring an instructor watching YouTube educational videos!

An insider shares:

"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.

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

Well… at least these cheeky chums are attempting to educate themselves in world languages, even if it is only by watching something online!

And in no way will this backfire and cause even more HIGHlarious misunderstandings!

HA!

    Poor clueless lads. But you have to figure–they were all losers on Simon Cowell's Brit talent show, and even when Simon put them together, they lost! rather synthetic, a creation of the Cowell machine, one can hardly expect them to be polished. Don't write their own music. Hmm…they can only last on the cute and fuzzy factor for so long–and when are the gossip sites going to talk about Harry and his odd penchant for women in their 30s? What more dirt will come out about the cheeky lads? Stay tuned?!

    What has happened to boy bands nowadays? Aren't theJonas Brothers coming out with an album soon? They actually write their own music! And Justin–he's been a little annoying lately, but he's actually for real talent, kind of a boy band all by himself.

    That's why you hire an interpreter who is their manager. I guess their lack of intelligence has been confirmed.

    Oh my god you people commenting need to shut the hell up. Seriously. These guys are on the road for months at a time, visiting different 3 different CONTINENTS in a weeks time, give them a break. Who cares if they don't know Japanese? Obviously they can't know every single language that exists. ESPECIALLY with their hectic schedule. Interpreters are a great idea, but don't call the boys uneducated because they don't know 100 languages. Good lord.

    really, why is this even a story? How many celebrities know the language of every country they visit? Know enough where they wouldn't need an interpreter? Hell, how many tourists do? Niall actually speaks Spanish, so for anyone calling them "uneducated" or "clueless," how many languages do you speak?

    I am laughing soooo hard. I don't even like these kids but the comments are priceless! Americans calling Brits uneducated lol. Especially because they don't know freaking Japanese? The fuck? Hahahaha..
    Americans are the most dumb, stupid, idiot, arrogant, narcicstic population i have ever seen. I once told an American that I am from Amsterdam and he thought it was a country! And i can't count the times people thought the Dutch are from Germany! Idiots.
    How many Americans actually know more then one language? I'd say majority of Eurpeans know 2 a 3, sometimes even 4, 5 languages.
