Smart Little Girl Can Speak 7 Languages!

Four-year-old Bella Devyatkina awed audiences in a Russian television program by proving that she can speak 7 languages. In addition to her native tongue, Russian, she can also converse in English, German, French, Mandarin, Spanish and Arabic. Her parents say she isn't particularly a child prodigy, but this ability is due to training and many hours of education.

Watch Bella in action:

Bella's mother is a linguist, and started speaking to her in both English and Russian from the time she was born. By the time she was 10 months old she was introduced to French. At 2 years old, she was introduced to Chinese cartoons, and after 3 years old, she showed interest in Spanish and German.

Research actually shows that children brought up in multilingual households perform better academically than those who only grow up speaking one language. Do you agree?
