"Nous mangeons sur la grande table."

Translation:We eat on the big table.

"on the big table" would imply literally sitting on it. In English, the proper way is to say "at".


"We are eating on the big table" - why wrong? In most cases present continuous or simple present are all the same. Anyway I agree with the others in the "on vs at" problem.
