    Started to rain or started raining

    Hi,

    What's the difference between the two sentences?

    It started to rain.
    It started raining.

    Thanks

    Re: Started to rain or started raining

    I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    You can use both "start doing something" or "start to do something". They have the same meaning.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
