Language and Communication: Overview (2-3 Years)

In their third year, children’s language skills continue to grow at an astonishing rate. They begin to use pronouns (“I” and “me”), and they can speak clearly enough that strangers can understand most of what they say. At the same time, children’s vocabularies continue to grow, and by age 3, many children know 1,000 words or more.
