    I am at the lesson./ I am in the lesson.

    Is the following exchange natural?

    A mother is calling her daughter who is at school at the moment:
    Mother: Where are you?
    Daughter: I'm at the lesson.


    Must we use in?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: I am at the lesson./ I am in the lesson.

    'I'm in a lesson' or (if it's one they've discussed before)'I'm still in the lesson'.
