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.

    You can say From my earliest years or from (my) early childhood, but not from my early age. Apr 22, 2019 at 12:12
  • You could also say (In / during) my early years, I [something]. Apr 22, 2019 at 15:26
