  • hello guys so as you can see we're not in our usual location we are out and

  • about in Soho and thought you'd like to join us so you may or may not know that

  • we've been working with rosetta stone over the last 30 days I am learning

  • Spanish and seeings as we've hit 50,000 subscribers the other day we thought

  • we'd go out to celebrate this evening at a tapas restaurant and I'm gonna try out a

  • bit of my conversational Spanish skills to see how much I've learned. And as you may or may not know I'm learning Japanese

  • at the moment with Rosetta Stone, so here's a

  • clip of me this morning skyping with Yuya who's one

  • of our Japanese viewers on YouTube and he's gonna help me with a bit of

  • conversation stuff I was really nervous about it but I gave it my best shot

  • konnichiwa I can't see you! *Japanese*

  • *Japanese*

  • Good job! Wooo yeah!

  • So for anyone who's wondering I'm just speaking to Yuya and he asked me what I'm gunna be

  • up to today and I said that I'm going shopping

  • I didn't say why, Yuya it's cuz I've got a photo shoot on Thursday so I'm not quite

  • sure how you say photo shoot yet and then *Japanese word* is filming so we're actually

  • gonna be vlogging today out and about in London so that's great

  • How are you doing? Yeah you told me that you're good! I said *Japanese word* which is are you good

  • yeah! Excellent! Ah that was nice, I was a bit scared to do that Yuya! Impressive!! Thank you! Too kind!

  • so we've had a really busy day so far we've just have a meeting with our management

  • we have a photo shoot coming up on Thursday and both of us feel like we've

  • got nothing to wear so we're going to go shopping try and find the perfect thing

  • before we go for tapas! obviously we're only 30 days into our learning at the

  • minute and I just can't wait to be like a year later

  • twelve months later and to go into all these amazing Japanese places that I

  • walk past in Soho all the time and just to be able to like order in Japanese

  • it's gonna be so cool I can't wait

  • I don't know what to get! Oh I'm gunna have to choose!

  • We have walked past this shop for so many years - it's felt like years!

  • And we have finally bought a doughnut!

  • so we've heard of this amazing Spanish tapas bar called tapas brindisa

  • they're in Soho and so we're gonna head there now and get some maybe some

  • Spanish wine and maybe some cava and uh yeah

  • see how my Spanish goes Cheers to 50,000 subscribers Joel! Cheers Lia!

  • mmm that is good. That is yummy!

  • *Spanish*

  • Joel, how do you say I love you in Spanish? Flashback! "how do you say I love you in Spanish?" How do you remember that? So embarrassing! Te amo! Te amo!

  • people think we're a really cringe Spanish couple! te amo! how do you say 'I love us'? Los amo! Cringe couple! We're not even a couple! Los amo!

  • Fun fact: this Cava is actually Spains version of Prosecco. Yeah and isn't it made in Barcelona? Barcelona!!! Yeah it is! It's very good

  • I'm loving having this sort of like Spanish day but also like some random

  • Japanese stuff I know it's so good although we did walk past a restaurant

  • earlier that was a mix of Japanese and Mediterranean so it's like very gourmet

  • we didn't eat there but otherwise we would have been there. Definitely!

  • Just in Soho with Joel and I'vejust come across a Japanese restaurant with a Mediterranean

  • touch and I was like oh my gosh that's me a Japanese lover who's also Greek look at this.

  • Japanese cuisine with a Mediterranean touch that is you that's literally me I'm

  • like I saw the place and I was like I need to order something here. I feel like going in and being like, this is me.

  • I love that sound! It's when you get something right on the app so how did you find learning

  • Japanese? I think with learning Japanese because it's so unlike any European

  • language it's been a huge step out of my comfort zone but it's been an amazing

  • one because it's like the letters and like just - you have to really put

  • more into it to kind of understand it and it's like you can't just like learn

  • the sounds I think the best thing about working with Rosetta Stone

  • you've seen the app is that it literally doesn't let you move on for like the

  • next step within that module until you've got it right which is quite nice

  • you can like pick and choose if you want to do like a writing listening

  • speaking lesson and so on but what's really great is that you know the

  • attention to detail, the fact that you have to speak back into the

  • microphone and they're checking whether it's right or not it's like learning

  • with a real teacher. Like Lia said the voice recognition technology so it

  • literally listens to your pronunciation to check if it's correct and the fact

  • they throw you straight into it without telling you like "this word means Apple"

  • it sort of it just throws a word at you and you've just got to do it by process of

  • elimination and you're like oh una manzana means that one Apple so dos manzanas

  • must mean two apples without it saying it explicitly, like this is what

  • it means! so their lessons make it feel like you're figuring out things for

  • yourself and you're learning it yourself rather than being told this is what it

  • means! thank you! gracias! so I just asked for the bill in Spanish which I was really nervous about

  • I don't know why I said la cuenta por favor? anyway two of our cards got declined

  • I think it was their machine so they went and got a new machine but is so

  • embarrassing we're like okay this doesn't work this doesn't work so awkward

  • it's just started throwing it down so we might have to cut our day short!

  • We had a big evening planned but it's just miserable, classic Spring/Summer day

  • So Joel, where are we going? We're heading into Liberty's which is the oldest

  • department store in London even more.... older than Selfridges!

  • I can see you in something like that! Hmmm no! Oh it's only £930!

  • I like that oh my gosh! I can see you in that. Do you want to hold it up to me! I really like that!

  • I can see you in that that's quite a bit big for you... it's a large!

  • oh I can see you in that! Oh is it Calvin Klein? that's awesome!

  • It looks kinda white on screen. Vote in the comments yes or no - Joel wearing a top that says

  • meaning! is that a small? that's a large but look how large it is! I bet that looks

  • amazing on! Wait I really wanna try that on! how is it now night time I don't know the

  • day has just disappeared I can't even see you it's so dark

  • You don't want any sugar do you? yeah sweetener! Thank you. That's okay! We have absolutely shopped

  • till we dropped! We're exhausted, so we've come to a Starbucks I've got a matcha latte which is a very Japanese

  • matcha is a sort of like a super powder superfood powder it's got more caffeine

  • in it than coffee wow you're gunna be buzzing for hours

  • and it's in latte form so a bit of almond milk very nice, so yummy thank
