Could Stalin speak foreigner languages?

I just watched several WWII movies and it just occured me - did Stalin speak foreigner languages, such as German, English or French or any other language? I think that it's given that he sure had to speak Georgian (since he came from that area) and Russian (probably wouldn't become a dictator of Soviet Union if he didn't), but could he speak any language aside of that? I can't find anything about that, anyone knowing the answer?

    Thanks for the answer - I was able to find out quite a lot about complexity of Stalin's character before but not about the languages (how maddenin!) Oh, and do write that hub, sounds like interesting reading! :)
