Is: "Our mother talks to you about medicine" wrong?

"aufs" = "auf" das so it should be "about the".

I'm confused. It says "spricht.... an" translates as "to appeal" and yet using that word is incorrect?

It's incorrect in this context.

How do you learn this though? It just tells you you're wrong because you tried to learn based on what it tells you.

Unfortunately, Duolingo's dictionary doesn't provide context information. You might want to use a proper dictionary.

"Our mother tells you about the medication." Why is that unacceptable?

It's not what the German sentence means.
