Can anyone help with how the developmental stages are?

my daughter was born at 27weeks, she is 3+ years now, but doesnt get into conversation yet, though expresses herself well on what she wants by making signs, and saying few line sentences.

Kids develop at different rates, so you really can't judge one against another. At 3 y/o, your child should be able to say around 300 words, put 4 or 5 words together to make short sentences (such as 'want more juice' or ‘he took my ball’), and be asking lots of questions. These are more likely going to happen between your daughter and you, and she still may be shy around others. Keep encouraging her to be more social with others. Don't be negative if she gets words wrong. If she says "nana" instead of "banana", say "good try" or "yes, this is a banana" to show her how to say it right. Don't say "No, it's BA-nana, say it right, BA-nana". It may make her afraid to try out new words if she gets scolded for saying it wrong. Stay positive, and keep working with her. If you're really concerned, you can have her evaluated for any speech or developmental disorders.
