Pepe is taking English.

Pepe is studying English


Explanation:
You use the present continuous "ing" English tense to express a Spanish indefinite present (like "estudia"). The article "el" (in el inglés) sounds like something else is missing in the phrase or sentence or that it is the language of a particular type of person or situation (it is a style issue). Otherwise you would just say "Pepe estudia inglés".

As my colleagues 'gris' and 'gracem' have noted,


Explanation:
this phrase is actually quite straightforward: "Pepe is studying [or "taking"] English."

It isn't a technological or engineering question, and therefore any good Spanish-English dictionary will help you find the answers.

One of the best, used by many professional translators, is Simon & Schuster's Spanish Dictionary (Spanish > English and English > Spanish), Second Edition (1997). The publisher is the Macmillan General Reference Company, and the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is 0-02-862013-5. The retail price in the U.S. is $49.95.

The price may seem high, but it's actually quite reasonable, especially when you consider that this 1600-page dictionary has more than 210,000 entries. There are many dictionaries on my bookshelves that cost three or four times as much, but I use the S&S almost every day.

Cheers and best regards, HC
