"Baba anaongelea na mwalimu wangu" A valid alternative? If not, what's the difference between kuongelea and kuzungumza?

'ongelea' is talk about, 'zungumza' is talk to. A synonym for 'ongelea' would be 'zungumzia'

P.S. 'Baba anaongelea mwalimu wangu' - Dad is talking about my teacher

Thank you! And then the difference between Kuongelea and Kuongea?

Kuongea is the same as kuzungumza. They mean the same thing - to speak
