Why is "wanacheza thelujini" wrong?


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

to me saying "thelujini" sounds more like "at the snow" / "in the snow" rather than "on (top of) the snow", which "juu ya" communicates more clearly.

Is there a practical difference though? Sounds rather strange (not wrong) in English.

And they do accept "thelujini" now.
