Now your child’s a preschooler, you can expect longer, more complex conversations about all sorts of things. Language development in children aged 3-4 years also includes a growing vocabulary and a greater understanding of the basic rules of grammar. You can certainly look forward to some entertaining stories!
Your child learns lots of new words by listening to you and other adults and guessing from context. They will also learn from new experiences and from listening to stories read out loud. They will still understand many more words than they say.
Your child might be able to name basic emotions like ‘happy’, ‘sad’ and ‘angry’. By four years, your child might know one or more colours and some contrasting concepts like ‘longer’ and ‘bigger’.
