This is what One Direction\'s children would look...
Seeing as One Direction barely spend enough time in each country they visit to alter their phone\'s timezone let alone pick up a new language, it\'s not surprising that their foreign language abilities are no more advanced than the rest of ours.
That\'s not to say they aren\'t proud of the few things their GCSE French Tricolore textbooks did teach them - and, as anyone who studies the language at that level will understand - the stuff you learn from those books isn\'t exactly applicable in an emergency situation.
For instance, we\'ve never once lied to a French person\'s face and talked about how much we love horse-riding and vegetables.

20 things that One Direction\'s Harry Styles has...
Anyway, one person who can always be counted upon to offer his best foreign speaking credentials in interviews is Harry Styles, and recently some observant types have noticed that he has a failsafe phrase that he always relies on when asked to say something in French. Take a look at the compilation right here:

Busted. Maybe after he\'s gone to the cinema with his friends and family, he can visit the swimming pool with his mother who has brown hair and blue eyes and is of a medium height. Or, failing that, he can always tell us how how History is his favourite subject because it\'s interesting.
Your thoughts on Harold\'s advanced French-speaking ability? We hope he never switches things up if we\'re honest, that compilation could do with an extra clip. Let us know your opinion with a tweet @sugarscape or drop us a comment in the box below.
