Description

Master your Spanish conjugation with Ella Verbs! Work your way through 38 levels of bite-sized lessons & quizzes, learning 16 tenses and covering over 1,450 verbs.

Hola! We are an Irish couple (Jane and Brian) living in Spain and learning Spanish. We started Ella Verbs as we were looking for a way to improve our Spanish verbs and make the jump from intermediate to advanced speakers. We tried many ways to improve our Spanish grammar (books, apps, tutors – you name it, we tried it!), but never found the one that clicked. So we built it!

We aren’t your typical Spanish flashcards or verb trainer app. Our philosophy is “learn, quiz, repeat”. We teach you, then quiz you and then surface content again when you need it most. It’s been proven that quizzing helps with concentration, identifying gaps in knowledge and long term retention (Roediger & Karpicke, 2006). You’ll enjoy our personalized Smart Quizzes to help you improve your Spanish conjugation faster!

Because it's just the two of us, we personally read and respond to every feedback email and review. So if you have an idea, issue, question or whatever, please get in touch! We really want and listen to your feedback, and regularly release new features and improve existing ones (to date we've released 30+ updates per year!). Together we want to help everyone learning Spanish to master their verbs :)

You can reach us in-app, or by emailing us at jane@ellaverbs.com or brian@ellaverbs.com. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Wonderful app!

I didn’t realize how much I would like this app when I started the free trial. It is evident a lot of thought and effort has gone into making it an excellent learning tool. There is some teaching of verb conjugation, but what I find most useful are the quizzes. Right now I am practicing using the quiz which presents example sentences with a verb missing (but you can see the infinitive) and you need to choose whether to use the preterite or imperfect past tense, and to write it out with correct accent marks. After you choose, the correct verb is spoken and written. Another favorite right now is choosing when to use ser and estar. The default settings use 100 common verbs, but apparently you can change those settings to over 1000 verbs. I haven’t used all the verb conjugation forms yet, but a quick perusal made me think they have them all. Highly satisfied, and hoping they will offer an affordable lifetime purchase option for this app. Well worth your time to accept the free offer and try it out!

Best Conjugation Trainer

Update:
App has changed to subscription model, so not all below applies...

I was hesitant to buy the app without trying it, but am so glad I did! It is easy to use and flexible, no nonsense but still feels fun. The way it divides learning verbs into categories like, stem-changing e to ie verbs or irregulars makes learning the verbs so much easier. I’ve heard this approach recommended by teachers (like the Spanish Dude) and have found it very helpful. Also the explanations of how to conjugate are concise but informative. The app feels like it was written by a good teacher / Spanish enthusiast not just a developer trying to make a buck. Also I like the fact that you don’t have to go through a huge instructional phase before quizzing, you can dive right in or choose to read the tutorials.
One piece of info I couldn’t find before buying was what verb forms it includes. As of this review it has: Present, preterite, imperfect, past perfect, future, future perfect, conditional, conditional perfect, subjunctive, subjunctive imperative, subjunctive present perfect, subjunctive past perfect, and imperative. Each section divides up into regulars and irregulars, with irregulars divided up into logical sections as mentioned. There are also options for taking quizzes mixing verb forms as well as a quiz on the ones you’ve missed.
Very well thought out. Highly recommend.

Customization and learning metrics are fantastic

This is truly a learning app, going way beyond conventional flashcard programs. You can use the built-in quizzes, or customize by choosing which verbs, which tenses, and choosing the testing format. It shows you how well you are doing in each tense and prompts you when you need more practice in any of them. The app is regularly updated with useful features, and the developers are very responsive to feedback over email.

The app can be frustrating to use early on because it is very structured in unlocking a set sequence of tenses, making you prove basic competency in each tense before it will let you move on to the next. But it’s worth it if you stay with it. After a year, I’ve unlocked 12 tenses and practice them regularly. I am so much more confident now, it is amazing.
