Three meetings were used for pre- and post-tests by the researchers while gathering data. In experiment classes, the average pre-test and post-test scores are 0,62 and 4,67. From the statistical test, discovered Asymp.Sig (2-tailed)= 0,000 < 0,05 so Ha accepted and Ho rejected mean that there is the difference of result of studies before and after using nearpod gamification for listening to British accent. Researcher can therefore conclude that the listening students at Mulawarman English Education are significantly impacted by the use of Nearpod gamification in the learning process
