mate, u r still using the four tones!!!! u just changed the the tone of the last word of every sentence u said! but for they other words u r still using the 4 tones! when i go back to china, or maybe after my exams, i will take a video to tell u how to speak chinese in one tone. i'm sure u wont understand!!! and also i can speak english in six different accent!: indian accent, mandarin accent, Cantonese accent, english accent , american accent and aussie accent!!!u will find some other things very interesting,like: for some chinese, especially for the chinese who live abroad and always get in touch with people from different provinces of china, they can differentiate which part of china the chinese from by listening to their mandarin!

They come in handy every once in a while.When studying mandarin in Taiwan, I heard several other laowai comment that it was not necessary to speak in tones. They noted that if you began to, you had to use them consistently and correctly, or people would cease to understand. I think it's possible to understand toneless Mandarin, but it requires more energy. It's 费力，as they say.If we get rid of 声调，can we also lose 句调?Music gets by fine without tones~
yeah gao yi's right..you are still using the four tones most of the time...if you use only one tone then it will be difficult to understand...need a lot of guessing.
