At the End – In the End (prepositions)

At the end – In the end: Simple English Videos One Minute Lesson

Oh, what movie are you watching? Oh, it’s The Murder Island Mystery. Oh it’s got a surprise twist at the end. It wasn’t the butler that did it. Stop, don’t tell me! I didn’t know what to get Vicki for her birthday. I thought about getting her something to wear. Then I wondered about something for her car, or something for the deck, or something for the house. In the end I decided to get her flowers. Happy birthday. Ah, thank you. They’re beautiful. You’re welcome. In the end’ is similar to eventually or finally – after everything has been dealt with, talked about, settled, decided. Excuse me. Is there a Mediterranean restaurant near here? Yes, right at the end of the block. Oh, thank you. We use ‘at the end’ to talk about the final part of something. At the end of the rainbow. At the end of the tunnel. So ‘at the end’, the final part of something. ‘In the end’, after a lot of time or a series of events. We had a problem with the shower. We needed a plumber. We looked on line. We looked in the newspapers. We called our friends. No plumber. In the end, Jay had to fix it himself. Well, we’re at the end of the video now. So bye.
