始め・・・start しごと始め the start of work/the work beginning 歩<ある>き始め the start of walking/the walk beginning 初め・・・first 初め分<わ>からなかった。 I did not understand at first. 初めの子<こ> the first child There are sentences that both of them are used. 始め/初めが肝心<かんじん>だ。 The beginning is important. ジョンさんを始め/初めとして優秀<ゆうしゅう>な学生<がくせい>がたくさんいる。There are a lot of excellent students including John.
