Shouldn't this be "My mother has spoken with the teacher"?

I assume either is acceptable

Was it marked wrong?

It was a multiple-choice answer and "with" was not one of the choices so I had to put "to". I was always taught to say "spoken with" in UK English. Perhaps it's different elsewhere.

I would say it's a subtle difference. Saying "spoken to" suggests that the conversation was a little more one-sided than "spoken with"

Since mom has spoken to the teacher, there has been little chance for dialogue. The poor guy couldn't get a word in edgewise.

"My mother has spoken with the master." Can't believe that's correct, haha.

Isn't teacher 'profesora'?

Yes.... it can be "profesor" or "profesora".

Why is this sentence considered a "present perfect"?

is "mi madre ha hablado al maestro? correct too

Yes, "speak to somebody" is "hablar con/a alguien".

But in that case you must add "le"... "mi madre LE ha hablado al maestro".

Shouldn't the very word "maestro" be considered acceptable, under the context of being a master of music, otherwise a conductor?

I entered "My mother's spoken to the teacher" and it was marked incorrect--reported it, but it's annoying.
