Salut! In the second last sentence, tarte is feminine, so why is it “LE goûter” and not LA goûter? I’m assuming the meaning of the sentence is “she invites some friends to taste it” or does it mean “the tasting”?
Dictation exercise A1
I think you have already realised by Le goûter --> the tasting (snack / after-school snack)
So she is offering a snack which includes "une tarte".
That's my understanding -- hope it helps.
To supplement Jim's answer, 'le goûter' (snack) comes from the verb 'goûter' (= to taste) - follow the link below to a previous explanation: why-le-instead-of-la
On a more cultural aspect, it is indeed the equivalent to an afternoon snack, usually after school. It is also called 'le quatre-heures', referring to the time of the day when the French snack takes place. It is a bit of a meal in its own right.

I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
