Trotsky's languages

Hi everyone, I don't have a linguistic question per se, but rather a language one: What languages did Leon Trotsky speak? I've looked at some online biographies, but none of them ever mention it. I was just wondering because I know that he once lived in New York and was assassinated in Mexico, but did he actually speak English and Spanish or did he just hang around other Russian expats?

I do hope this is not an inappropriate forum for this question, but I'm not sure where else I would ask it.
