Pl.correct the above sentence
The beginning of the year has started nicely
This sentence is not grammatically incorrect; however, the sentence sounds strange.
I suggest changing the sentence so it sounds more natural. For example:
"The year has started off nicely."
"The year has started off well."
The more natural way of speaking/writing is to talk about the whole year, not just the beginning of it (it seems a little redundant to say the beginning is starting). Also, it is very common for this phrase to use the phrasal verb to start off, rather than just to start.
