Is this supposed to literally mean that the son is walking on the table, or should the English be "My son walks over TO our table at lunch"?

I would also like to know why we can't use am instead of beim please

I don't understand why "am" can't be used here instead of "beim"

marked wrong because of "am", someone please clarify?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reignman

are "am" and "Beim" not interchangeable?

Is Tisch Akk. or Dat. ?

Either the English translation of this sentence is a mistake, or the German translation isn't literal enough. I'm betting it's the former.
