I can't discriminate between ''in the beginning'' and ''at the beginning''
Please help me to differentiate and explain why.
Thanks very much!
They essentially mean the same thing, but "In the beginning" has a more important tone. It's also used to reference the Bible.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
can you give me some specific examples?
at the beginning = when something begins (specific point in time)
EX: I couldn’t follow the film because I wasn’t there at the beginning.
The opposite: At the end
In the Beginning = At first, to begin with
ex: In the beginning I found it hard to concentrate, but now it's much easier.
The opposite: In the end
