I think the translation should be "principal" or "headmaster" something that is more related to education (as we are learning students, teachers, etc.)

    How many words for father (pa, papa, pop, poppa, dad, daddy...) have an equivalent in Portuguese? I translated this one, "My pop is a doctor", and Duo corrected "pop" to "dad," though the official translation uses "father".
