LUPITA NYONG’O has put her expansive lingual talents to good use by teaching children how to laugh on an episode of Mexican Sesame Street.

The Oscar-winning actress, who was born Mexico, spoke Spanish for her appearance on the children’s television show, which was celebrating laughter.

“Hello, I’m Lupita. Today I want us to celebrate smile day,” Nyong’o said in Spanish during the 17 second clip.

“Do you know how to laugh? Why don’t we laugh together? Ready, 1, 2, 3!”

She followed up her appearance on the series with a Spanish tweet which read: "I did something small on Sesame Street. See it here."

The 12 Years A Slave actress posted a photo of herself smiling with a puppet on set of the popular kids show.
