Attending a language school for a few weeks

I love using italki and will continue using and recommending it but I have a few weeks of holiday coming up and I am thinking of going to China for an intensive total immersion month to take me to the next level. There are many places to choose from, from universities to private schools.


I am looking for flexibility as I don't have much time and I don't want to be in a place with a big foreigner population as I want to be forced into speaking Mandarin to communicate. That suggests a private school outside Beijing.


Has anyone had any experience in short term language schools?

Thanks everyone but I arranged my trip today. A private school with small classes. not sure how it will work out but I am looking forward to it. I do enjoy travelling and have something to look forward to. I also need to step up my learning as I need to be able to communicate without English.
