Troublesome points

1. Do we say In the end or At the end?

A)      In the end = finally, after a long time:     In the end, I got a visa for Russia.

         “In the end” means the same as “finally” or “eventually”

B)      At the end = at the point where something stops:     I think the film is a bit weak at the end.

       “At the end“ is more physical like “at the end of the road” “at the end of the book” , though you can also say ” at the end of the day”.
