in the lesson for attendre the two examples are the same, the first should be about waiting.

Look at these two sentences: Ils attendent son arrivée d'une minute à l'autre. They're expecting him to arrive any minute now.[Lit. They're expecting his arrival.] they're simply stating they're expecting his arrival, if anything they're actually happy he's coming. Ils s'attendent à son arrivée d'une minute à l'autre. They're expecting him to arrive any minute now.[Lit. They're expecting his arrival
