"Okula çok geç başlıyorsun."

Translation:You are starting school very late.

October 30, 2015



"You are starting school very late." Is that right? The sentence looks to me like it says: "You are starting to school very late." As if you are heading for school late in the morning. But is there something idiomatic going on here that I'm not understanding?


It is definitely fine, especially if you started going to school at age 8 instead of earlier (or you start school at 11:00 am instead of earlier)


Why is "beginning"considered wrong? Is there a difference between beginning and starting?
