Since 'really' is emphasized in the English, 真 should really be a correct (ideally preferred) translation!

I thought really was "zhen" and not "hen"

Real =Zhen 真, really or very can be said in many many ways. Hen 很 is but one.

So, is using 真 correct here?

Yes and Duolingo enforces it strictly... until they just say whatever confuse them all...

How about 这个学生真的喜欢地理?

I think since it is a student we're talking about, it should accept 地理课 if you assume they're referring geography class

地 (dì) = earth/ground
理 (lǐ) = texture/science (many other translations)
地理 (dìlǐ) = geography

We saw 地 before in:
地 (dì) = earth/ground/place
铁 (tiě) = iron/weapons/hard/strong
地铁 (dì tiě) = subway/metro


喜 (xǐ) = to like/to be happy
欢 (huān) = happy/joyous
喜欢 (xǐhuan) = to like
