Alternate translation:

"My father is studying Spanish."

My dad studies spanish. Should be accepted

It could be accepted. But at this point DL has taught us the difference between "Papa'" and "Padre". This one says "padre" so they're expecting you to answer "father".

Estudio would be referring to "me" (first person) whereas this case requires third person

Padre translates to father or dad

Is "My father is learning Spanish" that off the mark?
