Which of these sentences is correct?
1- at the end
2- in the end
Hi matilda, Both are right but they have a slightly different meaning.
At the end of my walk I was very tired. ( means -- at the finish ---- you can`t use in the end here )
I didn`t like English food to start with but in the end I really loved it.
( gives the idea that after time something has changed)
Also --- We searched for ages and in the end we found a hotel with vacancies.
( means --- eventually )
You cant use " at the end " in the last two sentences
I fully agree with Tom and I`d like to add something .
"At the end" and "in the end" are prepositional phrases.
In the end = finally, after a long time
In the end she decided to go to the police station and confess everything she had done.
At the end = at the point where something stops.
I found the explanation at the end of the book.

Hi passionwaggon, If you were searching along a street you would have to say so. ---- we found one at the end of the street ---- otherwise people would ask at the end of what?
