This research is a review and descriptive research, which recognizes the role of language in growth and development.

The results show that the language of the stream is so complex that only humans can understand and learn it. Language learning takes place in specific and continuous stages so that the language system of children and adults becomes the same until the age of four. Language is one of the most important means of communication and understanding that God Almighty has given only to man, that this means of communication has a very important and worthy role in human life. Through him, we can convey our meaning to the other party very easily, or we can understand the meaning of the other side and show the appropriate reaction. Language is not only a means of understanding, but also a means of growth and development of human beings and human societies. The role of language in the development of culture, education and thinking is not hidden from anyone. Philosophers and thinkers' definitions of man as "man is a talking animal" or "a social and cultural animal" indicate the importance of language in man and its role in his life. Language is a window to penetrate the inner and cosmological world of people and to understand their personality traits, in other words, language and speech represent the personality and way of thinking of human beings. The easiest means of education is language, so it is up to parents, educators and teachers to take every opportunity to develop children's language ability. It is important that their verbal skills are properly developed.
