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.

1) while you are eating/drinking
e.g. "Ich bin jetzt gerade beim Essen(, kann ich dich zurück rufen?)"
= I'm eating right now (can I call back?)
2) yes, absolutely!
