    Is TO a bad mistake?

    I want to include this recording in a textbook (with audio), but if it's a mistake, I am not sure if I should.

    Why does the native speaker say "There are five members TO our family?" In another thread I started today I have been told it's a mistake.
    Is it a bad mistake?

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    It's not good English. Students should not be encouraged to emulate it.
