You might think Maname is just an ordinary game app at first, but in fact, there is a wide range of learning activities you can do with this single app. You can learn English pronunciation, practice spelling and check definitions for words. Students have diverse learning styles; Maname is an effective learning tool that offers adaptive learning tailored to each student’s needs. You can check the words that you haven’t answered correctly at a glance and you can learn at your own proficiency level. Learning with Maname, students seem to easily realize that they are making progress.

At our school, we set the first 10 minutes of the class as “Time for Maname,” where everyone uses Maname to study English. We used to adopt a different app for students, but it turned out that they got bored easily. Maname, on the other hand, has various kinds of exercises which motivate the students to keep on studying. We realized that with Maname, students are actually increasing and expanding their vocabulary. Another advantage of Maname is that individual students can learn at their own level.
