I reported this sentence because the audio of "familie" is missing. I wasn't sure what boxes to check - I did "audio is missing" and "dictionary hints are missing", but it's neither of them completely. I don't know if the moderators will read this, but just in case. I hope they understand my report with two boxes ticked. Besides, I don't know if the same happens in other sentences with "familie", but I could hear it in the exercise with pictures that introduce the vocabulary.
There is a long debate between English and American native speakers about this topic in many places here. In short if you speak about 'family', 'team', 'company' or any other group of people as a unit and do not care about the individuals in it you rather choose the singular verb.
