Hello Sana, don't worry at all. My son is 2yrs old and only utter 10/12 meaningful words. My son's pediatrician mentioned me that if a child is exposed to more than one language, sometimes their speaking skill get delayed. Now a days, children watched English cartoons. They get instructions in their mother tongue. Regional languages are also their. Moreover, all children are different. some learn to walk fast and some learn to speak fast. Continuously talk to your child. Ask numerous questions. Encourage your child to talk and make her understand that you will not reply to her sign and gesture. Show good picture study books and read out the words loudly asking her to repeat after your utterrance. PLEASE CONSULT A GOOD PEDIATRICIAN FOR THE PROPER GUIDANCE.

Hey Sana, it's absolutely alright. I however would advice you to talk more and more with ur child, ask questions, explain everything in detail in short sentences, tell stories and let her imagine, ask questions and give her time to respond, have an eye contact and explain things... ! Also, if you want to try, there are couple of apps available to help toddler with language development. Happy Parenting :)
