Dear Bengi
I would suggest that you visit a speech-language therapist to do an assessment for you. A three-year old should be talking a bit more at this stage and a therapist would be able to tell you why he is not. Maybe he are so comfortable using gestures that he just do not need to talk, however, have it checked out.
