    Bonjour tout le monde!
    Is anyone able to explain to me when it is applicable to use each of these expressions?
    Merci!!

    I would say we use the first one in almost any situation. The only exception I can think of would be something like: "Et on coupe le circuit au temps t."

    As far as I can say, au même temps is never used. In the same time is always en même temps.

    Thanks for clearing this one up - I'll always stick to "en même temps" from now on.

    You can say " Au même moment" which means the same as " at the same time" or " en même temps" / but never " au même temps" ;)
