The wonderkid appeared on a Russian TV talent show, ‘Amazing people’, and shocked the judges with her vocabulary skills in seven languages without a prominent accent.

Apparently, the child prodigy was pushed by her parents to study all of these languages. But neuropsychologist Anna Semenovich clarified that Bella is nothing but a genius. “If the girl is learning languages through curiosity, if her parents managed to build a schedule that works as a game, it will only benefit her. She’s not studying, she’s playing!” Semenovich said, reported RT.

“In pre-revolutionary Russia, if a child from a noble family couldn’t speak three-four languages by the age of five or six, it was a shame to take him/her out. Then in school, Latin and ancient Greek were added to those. So five-six languages were a standard package for an educated youth back in 19th-century Russia,” she added.
Russian kids start schooling at the age of seven, but Bella is still three years away.
According to Bella’s mother Yulia, Bella has mastered learning different languages since birth and seeing her daughter’s potential to be able to pick up other languages from nannies made them push her even harder.
We hope Bella’s skill makes her the winner of the show. All the best, you doll!!
