About Ella Verbs
We are an Irish couple (Jane and Brian) living in Spain and learning Spanish. When we began creating this app, we were looking for a way to make the jump from intermediate to advanced speakers. And our verbs were letting us down. We tried many ways to improve (books, apps, tutors - you name it, we’ve tried it!), but we never found one that clicked.
One sunny day in Mexico, Jane started making quizzes and exercises for us to test ourselves. It helped us immensely - so much so that our friends started asking how we were advancing so fast. And so it began!
Why the elephant?
We wanted our application to represent the idea of learning verbs for good, not just to pass a test tomorrow. Elephants have excellent memories, and we felt that this aptly represented our idea. So Ella was born 🐘
