Someone who speaks two languages is bilingual, and if they speak two or more languages, they can be called multilingual. Someone who understands many languages can also be said to be a polyglot. A person who can speak two or more languages is multilingual. A person who can speak three languages is trilingual. A person who can speak only one language is monolingual.
