"tôt or tard" meaning sooner or later??

In the boxed example above it says: Il s'apercevra de son erreur tôt "or" tard (and that is what the pronunciation sounds like to me as well), but I think that should read "tôt ou tard". So probably (as Steven says below) it is just a typo that needs fixing. Maybe "vous vous appercevrez de votre erreur tôt ou tard"? (smiley face)

Bonjour Alison,
I am not totally sure of your question. In French, tôt ou tard means «sooner or later» a phrase that we use in English from time to time. To that end, let's look at another example.
Tôt ou tard, il le comprendra ---> Sooner or later, he will understand it.
Whether «tôt ou tard» is at the end of the phrase or at the beginning, it has the same sense.
Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français.
J'espère que cela vous aidera bien.

I was confused too - it says tôt OR tard! Just a typo, then?
