Error in exercise

In the exercise we are asked to translate: "Also, they would teach them a new language and accompany them in their daily games." The answer given is "También, les enseñaría un idioma nuevo y los acompañaría en sus juegos diarios." but this should be enseñarían. 

The problem seems to be that the hint in the exercise doesn't match the actual text: "También, el robot les enseñaría un idioma nuevo y los acompañaría en sus juegos diarios."

Hola Inma,

I think Alan is right about the subject becoming plural. When I did the exercise the English text said "the robot would teach them a new language, and they would accompany them in their daily games." Shouldn't this read "it would accompany them."

Hola Graeme,

I checked this but the English text is saying "Also, the robot would teach them a new language". There is no "they". If the subject was "they" it would have to say "enseñarían" but the subject is singular "el robot".

Saludos,

Inma

Hola Inma,

Perhaps it's a bit confusing that the subject becomes plural midway through the sentence:

the robot would teach them a new language and they would accompany them ...
