At The End Vs. In The End – Confusing Words Lesson

Michael Confusing Words 1 Comment


At the end of the day, I like to relax while listening to some music. I listen to classical music because it’s relaxing. I tried listening to all kinds of music, but in the end, classical is the best for relaxing. Bach is my favorite composer because even though a lot of his music is written in a minor key (sad mood), some pieces change to a major Key (happy mood) at the end.

For today’s English lesson, I’m going to show you the difference between the two phrases, in the end and at the end. Have a look once more at the paragraph above, and then check today’s lesson.

At the end means the time or point that something ends. The grammar is at the end + of + noun:

  • At the end of the day, I like to relax while listening to some music.
  • At the end of the movie, the hero defeated the bad guys.
  • You can find a nice café at the end of this street.

In the end means finally or lastly. The phrase in the end can come at the beginning or the end of a sentence:

  • We looked in many stores to find a nice sofa. In the end, we bought one at the furniture shop at the mall.
  • I couldn’t decide what to do last weekend and in the end, I just stayed home.
  • Jack was considering which apartment to rend. He decided to move to Brooklyn in the end.
