Bella Devyatkina is only 4-years-old, an age where most children are just coming to grasps with speech itself.

But this Moscow-native can speak not one, but seven languages. All with impressive fluency.

She speaks Russian, English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and Arabic.

Bella appeared on a Russian television program to showcase her polyglot skills. During the presentation, the adorable little girl moves from language to language, answering questions posed to her in different tongues by seven different adults who each represents one of the languages young Bella speaks.

Like all 4-year-olds, Bella struggles to stay still on stage and still speaks with the innocence of a small child.  Yet her fluency of such varied languages shows a talent well beyond her years.

Take a look at the video of Bella, below, showcasing the astounding skills.
