The Bubble Team

Danny Smits

Co-founder & CEO

Former journalist, teacher and digital campaigner. Danny now oversees all the marketing, sales and project management in Bubble towers. Known around the office for his unhealthy fixation on finding that ever-elusive perfect chair posture and his uncanny knack of sniffing out spare desserts in the canteen. Currently taking up fishing.

Robert Hanley

Co-founder & COO

One of those strange people happiest in a classroom, preferably being listened to in spellbound silence, Rob’s in charge of English Bubble’s gaming and educational content. He also likes to put on ties and practise his handshake on strangers. When not mangling foreign languages through his Irish accent he can be found wandering in the woods playing swishy games on his phone in the name of research.

Our Principles

Scientific

We work with a pretty amazing team of language nerds, teachers and learning scientists, and every game goes through a detailed process to ensure it's the best way for learners to improve their language skills while playing a fun game.

Social

Learning's more fun when it's done together. Play our games with friends, share your words or achievements, or taunt them with your high scores.

Personal

Our games are designed so you can learn independently, choose your topics and level. But sometimes you also need a hand, so all our games give you personal, progressive feedback to guide you on your personal language learning journey.

Fun

'Boring learning' is a contradiction ... it's impossible to learn unless you're energised, your brain is switched on, and you're interested. Our priority is to make fun games that excite you and open up your learning potential.
