    A youtube video lesson and a question

    I found a pretty helpful little video lesson on youtube teaching kitchen items/foods etc.. (link), but at the end she says something that confuses me. She says "стави тарёлка на стол." Shouldn't it be "на столе"? Is that a mistake or did I learn something wrong? Or are there exceptions to using the prepositional case?

    ставим тарелку на стол

    She says everything right. She uses the Accusative.

    На + accusative is used to speak about direction or motion towards. Imagine that you are answering the question Куда? На что? Where? On what?

    Hmm, I think I understand now. I guess I need to work on learning my cases a bit more thoroughly. Thanks for the response.
