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
