    To review what you've learned above regarding the four basic tones of Chinese, I'd like you to create an account on a website called Memrise, which you can use in a browser or by installing the Memrise app on your phone or tablet.  Memrise is an electronic flashcard service that will be extremely helpful for you to ensure that you learn essential concepts and vocabulary this semester.  You may need to create an account, using either your Google or Facebook credentials, or creating a separate Memrise account using an email address, before you can access this Memrise lesson:

      Memrise: Four Tones of Chinese

    By the end of this week, I'd like you complete the lesson "Four Tones of Chinese" on Memrise.  If you encounter any issues logging into Memrise or locating the "Four Tones of Chinese" lesson, please contact me as soon as possible at

    There is no need to upgrade to the Pro version of Memrise.  The free version will work just fine for the purposes of this course.  Of course, if you would like to try a Memrise Pro subscription, and the cost is not a burden for you, you can also feel free to try it out.

    After finishing the Memrise lesson, you should also continue reviewing it during the rest of this semester.  Develop a habit of using Memrise on a regular basis, every day or two, for at least 5 to 10 minutes a day.  You might need to spend more time per day reviewing on Memrise later in the semester, after you've learned a larger number of vocabulary words.
