it depends on the child, and also what u mean by speak.
they should have words by the time they're 18 months, even if they don't pronounce them right. By 3 they should definitaly be putting together good sentences with most pronounciation pretty well. I brought my 3 1/2 year old to a speach specialist because he wasn't saying his S words right all the time and she said he should be able to since he's 3!! So we're working on that at home.
How old is your child and how developped is his/her speach??
