The vocabulaty/audio review MP3 (stream and download) is missing the Chinese. It is only a recording of the English words used in the lesson.

I have two questions regarding the use of 'gāi...le'.
First, is this interchangable with 'yīng gāi...le' or should the 'yīng' not be used at all in this construct?
Second, does this construct mean 'ought to do ... now/immediately'?

I have a question on the use of shape word, round. Forgive me, but I am on a work PC right now so cannot type the Chinese characters.
Going back to the Elementary lesson "Basic Shapes", I was under the impression that adjective versions of shapes had to be followed by a 'de'. For example, 'yuán de' and 'fāng de'. In this lesson, there is no 'de' after the 'yuán'. Why is that, please?
