To end up

To end upHi everyone,

Although she started college late, my sister ended up graduating #1 in her class.

The phrasal verb to end up means to become (eventually). It is an inseparable verb.

Here are some examples:

If Julia works hard she will end up a great lawyer.
They will end up very famous if the magazine interviews them.

To end up can also mean to arrive (particularly after a long time).

We end up eating Italian food when we cannot agree on anything else.

If you keep working hard you will end up passing your English exams!

Best regards,

Now Teacher
