Do they just not pronounce "er"?

It is, but in a sentence it would usually only have an "a" (as in "apple") sound. If you listen very closely, you should be able to hear it in the audio :)

You mean that in spoken danish, you just don't pronounce "er" in these sentences? Or is "er" really slightly pronounced?

I typed "chile" instead of "child" and it failed me. Darn these fat fingers of mine.
