1D To Learn Lingo After Japanese Press Conference
Lads want to build up a bond with fans overseas after 'awkward' event...
While member Zayn Malik may have had a lucky escape after reportedly suffering from sickness, the rest of the lads were left to face the crowds where they found it difficult to get the hang of the lingo.
According to The Sun, the Kiss You band have now set themselves the task of learning enough words to be able to hold a conversation in countries far away from the comforts of home.
A friend of 1D told the tabloid: "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 think it will avoid embarrassing moments and build up a bond with fans.”
The source added: "They’re just going to use YouTube tutorials to brush up on their language skills and think that’s going to be enough.”
