This exercise is titled, Le Sun7 Beach...It should be, Le Sunset Beach...The same error occurs in the second phrase of the exercise.
Dictation exercise A1
Could it be that "Sun7" is a cute abbreviation of "sun-se(p)t"?
Craig, according to their Facebook page, and Trip Advisor, this bar on Marie-Galante island is indeed called Sun 7 Beach. As Chris said it was probably named as a pun. Hint: it is usually best to check your facts before criticising, in my opinion.
Paul, I'm sorry you thought I was being critical. The content of these exercises are fictional, and I had no idea there
was actually a beach by this name, but there are countless "Sunset
Beaches" in the US. So I was simply trying to point out what I thought was a typo to the editors of the program so it could be fixed. I'm hurt that you implied I was being rude, when I was just trying to be helpful. I'm new to these exercises, and don't know how else do so.
Craig - For what it's worth, I didn't get it either and wrote "Sunset Beach" in the dictation. Only after I saw the hint, (which I had not noticed), did I realize that it was a pun on the word "sept=7". So, you aren't the only one.
I often ask about things in the exercises that I believe are “wrong”, and it’s then explained to me that in fact I’m the one who is wrong, and I learn something new. This is a great way to learn and I recommend it. The alternative is to not ask for fear of being mistaken, which has a chilling effect on learning.
I thnk the alternative is always Google :) I just Googled "Sun7" and it came up immediately. When in doubt, Google! I was pleased to see this place and was amazed at it and had never heard of it before. The next thing I googled was flights to Marie-Galante ha ha ha
