Go to Settings > Application manager > All and find Samsung keyboard.
Select Wipe Cache then Wipe data.
Now return to an app that uses the keyboard and it should restart without problems.
If not,
Either install another keyboard from the Play Store (I use SwiftKey and very pleased with it) or reinstall your firmware to repair your Android keyboard.

You can go to the Play Store through your computer.
Then send the selected app to your Notepad.

Reinstall your firmware using Kies.

When you first started your T520, did you register your Gmail account?
Have you installed Kies on your PC?
If not go to this link:

T520 firmware is here, but without knowing your Tab Product Code I cannot give your exact firmware.
