Hey,
why don't you use some podcasts for learning chinese?
If you are travelling around it will be maybe very difficult to follow a course or somebody which will follow you. Besides, the pronounciation of the many regions in China is very different.

Hi Coolguy,

In which place you're coming in China? I know there is an institute Minds Abroad which has fantastic Chinese learning programs for foreigners. But that institute is in Kunming. If you're visiting in any other place in China then there might be some other institute that can help you.
