When I'm going to start a sentence with From my early age grammar checker shows an error. It's suggest me to use From an early age

Is there any major different with both of the term.


"From an early age" sounds much more natural. The phrase should be followed immediately in the sentence by a noun or pronoun representing the person to whom the phrase applies.

    "From an early age, I had a strong penchant for robotics." This reads well. – Philip Wood Apr 22 '19 at 11:43

    You can say From my earliest years or from (my) early childhood, but not from my early age. – Kate Bunting Apr 22 '19 at 12:12
  • You could also say (In / during) my early years, I [something]. – Jason Bassford Apr 22 '19 at 15:26
