At first I thought it said "The children read over beers." I imagined a group of children hanging out in a pub reading books. Thank goodness for the mouseover

Yeah, and for me this was "Type what you hear" so there was no mouse-over.

So it wasn't until I answered that I saw that the answer had nothing to do with beer.

I thought this was some school where you hang kids over bears and ever time they read a word wrong you lower them closer to the bears. Maybe kids will be able to read finally

I literary heard "brem" after repeating 3 times. Beren would be with long e, right?

When I heard this sentence I understood: "The children read about beers" and I was like "wtf?" xD

I thought I heard the same thing. After all we are talking about the Netherlands where people greet juice and introduce themselves as apples

This section does not update correctly after reviewing, leading to a lot of unnecessary repetition. Please fix!

Is the pronunciation with the short "e" correct?
