    in the end=finally. We use in the end when we say what the final result of a situation was. For instance:
    We had a lot of problems with our car. We sold it in the end. (=finally we sold it)

    at the end (of something)= at the time when something ends. For instance:
    at the end of the month
    at the end of the film
    at the end of January

    Hi,
    In the corner = inside it.
    Let's stand in a quiet corner and talk about it.
    At the corner =outside.
    Let's meet at the corner of the street. (AE -on the corner).
    Cheers
