English-language learning students can practice speech and perfect pronunciation from the comfort of their own homes with Ola.


TORONTO, Canada, June 17, 2021 – ELL Technologies Ltd., DBA as Everybody Loves Languages (“Everybody Loves Languages” or the “Company“), an EdTech company that is ‘building a multilingual world’ through innovative online technologies and solutions, announced the release of Ola, a mobile app developed to help English-language learners perfect their speaking skills. Ola provides over 200 hours of speaking practice and is offered to all Everybody Loves Languages’ English students.

Using one of the largest digital content libraries in the world, the Ola app delivers effective and practical learning exercises for users who are on the go. The app’s speech recognition technology allows students to analyze pronunciation and simulate real-life conversation scenarios with characters modelled using audio from native English speakers.

“With Ola, Everybody Loves Languages strengthens its track record as an innovator in English-language learning,” said Gali Bar-Ziv, President & CEO of Everybody Loves Languages. “Ola, which means wave in Spanish, represents the continuous endeavour and fluidity of language learning. The app uses AI-based feedback to support students in mastering a new language. It caters to the convenience that modern learners expect from their mobile devices, allowing them to learn from wherever they are.”

The app launched with two major features, Speak2Me and Studio. Using Speak2Me, students can select their skill level, choose an avatar, and have a dialogue with their virtual conversation partner, Lucy. The second feature, Studio, allows students to perfect their pronunciation skills and expand their vocabulary through the repetition of simple phrases. Both features provide students with colour-coded feedback, indicating where they did well and where they can improve. “For many students, speaking is the most dreaded part of learning a new language,” said Mark Beyer, Director of Pedagogy at Everybody Loves Languages. “The issue is further complicated with online learning, where students can’t always find opportunities to practice with their peers. The Ola App helps students with self-study, providing them with additional support while also allowing teachers to monitor their progress via our LMS.”

Bolstered by decades of expertise within the product innovation team at Everybody Loves Languages, Ola leads the industry with its comprehensive approach to learning beyond the classroom. For more information about the Ola App, visit olalearn.com.
