German language, with its very fixed order, requires special attention to repeating of the beginning of a sentence. Here we will look, how to avoid repetition in essay in German. Also, in any essay in any language, it is very important not to repeat verbs. In describing appearance, the verb “to have” is too active. Therefore, let’s explore alternative verbs and constructions.

beginnen and anfangen are considered to be almost complete synonyms. But there is also a slight difference. To these two, let’s add the very limited use of starten.
