Should the lesson say se comes before 3rd person singular and plural verbs?

The lesson says that when using se the verb is conjugated in the 3rd person singular, yet in the quiz, the verb bailar was conjugated as bailan. Does this mean the lesson should say 3rd person singular and plural?

This relates to:
Expressing instructions and general statements with the impersonal se = one -

Dear Gail, thanks a lot for your question and sorry about our delay. The lesson above is about using the impersonal "se" + a verb in the 3rd person singular. However, if the verb is conjugated in the 3rd person plural, we are dealing not with an impersonal sentence, but with a passive sentence instead. Therefore, in the quiz you can find "se" followed by the 3rd person singular or plural depending on the context. I hope this explanation makes more sense to you and do not hesitate to contact us again if you need further help.
