What's the grammar behind '기' in this sentence?
한국어를 배우려고 노력하기 시작한다 = I start to try to learn Korean

What meaning does it have? How can I use it? I haven't learned about it yet, I hope someone can explain it to me.
If this sentence is not good for explanations or even wrong, maybe you can explain it for me with
another example. Would be great!!

Thank you :)
