    On the lesson

    At the lesson the teacher explained new rules to the pupils. Can we say on the lesson?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: On the lesson

    Not in my dialect.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    And how about "IN the lesson"?

    I think Barb's suggestion "during" is the best.
