Tips to remember the Russian word:
– The word "начать" (na-chat') may remind you of the English word "initiate," both of which have slightly similar sounds and meanings related to starting something.

– "Начать" is an infinitive verb that means "to begin" or "to start."

Other words that mean the same thing:
– "Стартовать" (startovat') – to start (more commonly used in contexts like races or motorsports)
– "Приступить" (pristupit') – to begin, to commence

Infinitive: начать (na-chat')
Past Tense:
– я начал (ya nachal) / я начала (ya nachala)
– ты начал (ty nachal) / ты начала (ty nachala)
– он начал (on nachal)
– она начала (ona nachala)
– оно начало (ono nachalo)
– мы начали (my nachali)
– вы начали (vy nachali)
– они начали (oni nachali)

Present Tense:
– Не applicable (начать is an imperfective verb; it suggests a completed action so it doesn't have a present tense form as itself. The present tense for an ongoing state would be "начинать" which conjugates in the present).

Future Tense:
– я начну (ya nachnu)
– ты начнёшь (ty nachnyosh')
– он / она / оно начнёт (on / ona / ono nachnyot)
– мы начнём (my nachnyom)
