Language lessons for One Direction

One Direction have been in Japan

One Direction have apparently vowed to start learning languages so they don't get caught out when they are touring.

The Brit-winning boyband - Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - found themselves out of their depth during a press conference in Japan last week, so they've decided that from now on they will learn a bit of the lingo before they head to foreign countries.

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 singers are planning to log onto YouTube for some language lessons to help them "avoid embarrassing moments" abroad in the future.

The insider said they also think it will help them to " build up a bond with fans".

The group were greeted by huge crowds when they touched down at Narita Airport in Tokyo.

Niall tweeted: "Airport was crazy! Big love to japanese fans. I love this country! such a laugh! Amazing sashimi we had yesterday! Incredible!"

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
