I work with preschoolers and have had some as young as 4 who are fluent speakers. I have one this year who actually holds conversations with me.
About four or five
Well, my son who's 3 can clearly say triceratops and other multi-syllabic words. I'm finding that as time passes the sentences get longer and more sophisticated.
every child develops in every way at their own rate, some children may not speak till they are sometimes 3 or 4 some may begin at a very young baby age.every child is an individual and shud be allowed to develop at their own rate.
My son had limited expressive language (under ten words) until he was about 42 months old. He is now three months shy of five and is starting to speak in complete sentence. However, his receptive speech is fine. Our speech therapist said this was relatively normal and that most children who are behind in expressive speech "catch up" between the years of five and seven.
Most parents can hardly wait for their baby to say its first word. This usually happens between nine months and a year. From about two years, the child should be able to use simple phrases, and by three he should be able to use full sentences. By four, he should be fully able to talk, although he may still make grammatical errors. By five, he should have acquired basic language.
I have three children and all of them developed their speech at different times. My oldest was the latest but she is developmentally delayed. My middle child spoke clearly by about a year and a half. My youngest child was speaking by the time she was about 9 months and her doctor said it was mostly because she was exposed to language a lot because there is 13 years between her sister and her self and her father and I talked a lot. So she was exposed to language almost all the time. But my mother who had nine children also had two sons who didn't speak fully until they were about 4 or 5 it usually depends on the child and how much exposure they get to lanugage. Boys also mature later than girls and they tend to speak later and learn to potty train later also. you should also consider the child's age and maturaty level and to remember that each child develops at their own level.
I didn't talk until I was 3. But that's OK. (Just to illustrate that talking a little later than most kids does not indicate anything about intelligence, when I was 12, and other times later, I tested at IQ 175.)
