Hi,

what's the difference between "I'm gonna get started ..." and "I'm gonna start ..." ?

Hi.

What's the difference between "I'm gonna get started ..." and "I'm gonna start ..."?

Welcome to the forum.

Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter. There isn't much difference between your two phrases but they're both very informal and "gonna" should never be used in written English unless you are quoting speech directly. Use "going to" at all other times.

Thank you for the corrections.

I am aware that it is a small difference there. However, I hoped that someone who is native could explain it to me.

In my opinion there is no difference in meaning.
