Meet Bella Devyatkina the little girl that speaks seven languages

Learning new languages can be a very difficult especially if you lack patience. Nigerians are typically bi or multilingual due to its diversity. An average Nigerian can speak English, Nigerian Pidgin English (I consider it a language since native English men and women can't speak nor comprehend it) and their native language. I can speak English, Yoruba, Pidgin English and Igbo fluently while I speak Spanish and French less fluently and I'm an adult.

Yulia insisted in an interview that she has those ability due to the fact that her father and her started teaching Bella English when she was only two years old after noticing her interest in the language and the ease with which she picked up everything. As time went by, they began adding other languages for her and hired native tutors for each new language.

Her mother also confirmed that she was three and a half years old when she began speaking two languages and mastered two more in the next six months.
