Undecided questions
Two quick questions!

Two very quick questions;

1. What does 'beim Essen' 'beim Trinken' mean?

literal translation to English is 'at' which is obvoiously not correct here?

2 'bei mir' is used to mean 'at my house/place'

therefore can I also say ;

'bei Ihnen' = at your house

'bei ihr' = at her house

'bei ihm' = at his house


Thanks again for your much appreciated assistance.
