This is a really popular question that can confuse a lot of people, and I can understand why. This question from a student on my Instagram channel ( Get English Tips) was asking for the difference between 'at the end' and 'in the end' when you speak English

How would you answer this student question?

Practice your English and write below how you would explain the answer to this. You can also write a couple of sentences and I'll check them for you

Here's the transcript:

Both are actually correct!

 

'In the end' we use perhaps with a situation that was difficult, difficult but in the end of all of that situation, something was good.

 

'At the end' is physical, at the end of my street, at the end of my holiday etc.

 

So really. 'in the end' is something, I guess, that's not tangible, something that you can not touch, At the end end is something you can touch.

 

That's generally the difference
