15/04/16 “Difference between “START” and “BEGIN””

e-lesson

Let’s find out:
There is usually little or no difference between start and begin.
Examples:
I began/started teaching when I was 17.
If she doesn’t come soon, let’s begin/start without her.

We generally prefer begin when we are using a more formal style.
Compare:
We will begin the meeting with a message from the President.
Damn! It’s starting to rain.
